Major improvements are coming to Smithsburg’s Veterans Park and they aren’t going to cost tax payers a single penny.
The town has received state and local grants totaling about $130,000.
They’re using this money to create a field, expand the walking paths, make an access road for secondary exits and put in a gazebo.
This is part of the long term improvements to the park to create a space for people of all ages in the community.
Donald Souders, Smithsburg Town Council Vice President, said “It is just something that we wanted to reinvest into the community and wanted to add and enhance into the park. we are trying to make the park as inclusive to everyone in the community as possible.”
A majority of construction is expected to be done by the end of the summer, but the council reminds anyone planning activities at the park to reach out to town hall to make sure that those events will accommodate the construction schedule.
