ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The young people  of Allentown are coming together to make the city a safer place to play.

A student group known as the 'United Youth' took to the stage at the Holiday Inn in Allentown Friday to present its idea for a 2 acre park near the city's riverside.

Local leaders had words of  praise for the  group.

United Youth hopes to one day have the city build its park that would include  basketball courts, lit walkways,. and even a new skate park.
