RED LION- Rep. Stan Saylor (R-York) announced a $244,375 grant for Red Lion Borough in York County. This grant will help the borough construct a 480-square-foot amphitheater stage at Fairmount Park. The grant was made available from the Commonwealth Financing Authority through the Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program. The grant program is funded through impact fees on unconventional gas wells, established through Act 13 of 2012.
“I am thrilled I was able to secure funding to provide additional recreational opportunities for the residents of Red Lion at Fairmount Park,” said Saylor. “Fairmount Park is the premier recreational venue in Red Lion, and the addition of an amphitheater will allow for additional entertainment and programming that all residents will be able to enjoy.”
Fairmount Park is an 11-acre park located adjacent to the public library and the high school athletic facilities. The park currently has walking paths, a playground, volleyball and basketball courts, a splash pad, and a picnic pavilion.
