Things are happening in Springfield Township! The Township is working hard to provide and plan for some much-needed improvements to the community. All these enhancements were made possible in large part with grant funding!
Cisco Park Gabion Repair
Tropical Storm Ida caused significant damage throughout the region, including several sections of the gabion wall in Cisco Park. Gabions, large cages filled with rocks, gravel or other heavy material, are installed along waterways to prevent streambank erosion. Thanks to funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Township was able to repair the collapsed gabions and add a concrete footer to prevent future collapse.
Walnut Avenue Trail
(Joint partnership with Sandy Run Country Club and funded in part by a Montgomery County 2040 Grant)
The Township will soon be installing a 0.3 mile pedestrian trail along Walnut Avenue from Oreland Mill Road to the entrance of Sandy Run Park. In addition to providing residents with increased walking trail access, the Walnut Avenue Trail will enhance pedestrian safety and provide a viable connection between Sandy Run Park and the planned public park at the former Tank Car property (1725 Walnut Ave).
Bysher Fields ADA Improvements
(Joint partnership with Springfield Township Little League, PA Senator Art Haywood, and funded by a PA Keystone Communities Grant)
Ensuring that Township residents and visitors of all capabilities can enjoy our recreational amenities is a crucial focus of the upcoming Bysher Fields ADA improvement project. The home of Springfield Township Little League, Bysher Fields in Flourtown will have ADA-compliant parking spaces and a paved pathway to improve accessibility. Construction is anticipated to start later this year.
