Salisbury officials review final details for Lindberg Park

The project is scheduled to wrap up by end of 2018

SALISBURY TWP., Pa. - Salisbury Township Commissioners on Thursday heard a presentation on the 2018 rehabilitation plans for the final two phases of Lindberg Park located in the western end of the township.

Project manager Len Policelli, of Bethlehem's Urban Research and Development Corp., congratulated commissioners on completing 11 design and construction phases in the past five years with the remaining leading to the park's completion by the end of 2018.

The second to the last phase includes a new playground area, pavilion and restrooms costing $515,000 for which Salisbury secured $277,000 in state grants. Policelli said the pavilion and restrooms will no longer be connected to one another, but separated allowing for easier access to other park areas.

The final phase will include splash devices accommodating 20 to 30 children and two adult pickle ball courts, which was the second most requested recreational item by township residents second to pathways

Other amenities planned for the final phase are a tranquility garden and access improvements such as a solar-lighted drop-off and pick-up area near the playground.

Costing $550,000, the final phase will be paid for, in part, with $370,000 in state grants.

The playground will feature a double sliding board and three different climbing rides for children such as a swing and climb, hide and climb and spin and climb.

Construction on the final phases is scheduled to begin in May of next year.
