The old pavilions in New Kensington Memorial Park have been demolished and new pavilions built. The New Ken/Arnold Social in the Park Committee, which is dedicated to preserving and revitalizing Memorial Park and Roosevelt Park in Arnold, wants to thank everyone involved:
• The city of New Kensington, its Redevelopment Authority and the Northern Westmoreland Career & Technology Center teamed up with the committee to make this project possible;
• The Community Foundation of Westmoreland County is providing the project with a $20,000 grant;
• The numerous bands who generously provided their time and talent over the years at the Rockin’ Roosevelt and Band Blast benefit concerts;
• And most of all, the community, whose great support over the past five years made this happen.
Our next project will be the construction of a new, larger and safer tot lot in Roosevelt Park.
Our next event will be the annual Rockin’ Roosevelt benefit concert May 15 in Roosevelt Park. For details, visit our website at.
