Limerick Township recently presented concept plans for several of its properties, all focusing on adding more parks and open space to the township’s map, writes Evan Brandt for The Pottstown Mercury.
The plans were presented by Tim Haas, assistant township manager, and Ryan Yanchocik, parks and recreation assistant director, at the supervisors meeting on September 3.
The 17-acre Linfield Sports Park on Longview Road was purchased in 2010 by the township. Plans include fields for high-activity sports with baseball, basketball, and soccer fields. There will also be areas for activities that do not require as much physical exertion including bocci, chess, and backgammon boards build into tables. In addition, the plans include a playground for younger children.
The three-acre property on Main Street along with its historic toll house was purchased by the township more recently. It is located next to the Schuylkill River and the Linfield Road bridge.
The plans show that the historic toll house would be preserved and could be expanded to become a visitors center. The space on the property near the river may also add a raised boardwalk trail, pergola, and a kayak launch for water activities.
