Park revitalization

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 .

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
