EBENSBURG ­– State Rep. Frank Burns, D-Johnstown, announced a $56,600 state grant to fund a project to rehabilitate Ashville Park in Ashville Borough.

The grant will enable Ashville Borough to construct a parking area and install play equipment, as well as conduct landscaping and other improvements. It was funded through the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Community Parks and Recreation Grants program.

“During the pandemic, a lot of folks turned to outdoor spaces for recreation and other opportunities,” Burns said. “This grant builds on that demand and will allow Ashville to rehabilitate its park for future use and enjoyment.”
