Friends In The Park

This morning, Friends Of The Allentown Parks, sponsored an Accessible Discovery Nature Walk in Cedar Park. Leading the well attended event, with his back to the camera, was Phil McGrath, retired naturalist with the Pa. Dept. of Conservation and National Resources.

MM can you publish about these events as I am one of many that have missed out on this spectacular truthful historical learning event¿ As I have lived in allentown all my life and was looking for the boat launch in the parkway since you and the freinds cleaned it off, to no avail til your walk this spring.

redd @5:51, yes, i will publicize selected events scheduled by Friends of the Allentown Parks, which is a organization affiliated with the park department and city. f.y.i, the boat landing was cleared by myself and some volunteers recruited by these blog posts, but not the Friends of the Park organization.

Thank you for publishing me MM, as I do not read the local paper any longer because of there edited out truth in reporting. I have just become a troll and still some truths do not find there way to the light of day¿ Have you found out what are the supports for at allentowns future arena site¿
Have you read about the pools and pete saying the entire city benifits from foutain park¿

@9:01, the park department is very much understaffed because of administration priorities in the recent years. selling off the water dept. will only add to the shortfall, because there was a certain amount of overlap between the park, watershed and water department which will no longer exist as city departments.

What a great idea. Who organized this? Electric wheelchairs are a wonderful design idea.

Are you going to meet with the new park director? Will he meet with the public at Lehigh Parkway for suggestions and show time? Maybe the parks have been neglected but why? Isn't that the city administration that can find millions upon millions for the downtown arena but how much for the city parks? Why Lehigh Parkway doesn't even have one ugly plastic barrel for dog waste the entire path from the covered bridge to the fish hatchery so guess what is happening. Small plastic pooh bags now litter the walkway.

Maybe a future blog will address the
closing of 24th Street at the same time 15th Street is under repair.
Can you imagine what's going to happen to the little Shreiber's Bridge!

@7:33, the program was organized by several organizations, including The Center For Independent Living.

@7:37, i had an opportunity to talk with the new park director once so far. He is from the Lancaster area, and it will probably take some time for him to become familiar with our vast park system.

@7:39, i posted about that exact situation on june 6th.

i often do not print comments with questions that require a reply. if your comment/question does not appear, please do not be offended.

Will try not to ask another question. Sorry about that. Thank you for even reading my comments.

@6:36, i sincerely appreciate you and everyone else who reads my blog. sorry that i'm so difficult in the comment department. as you may know from other blogs, comments can run the gamut from subversive and insincere, to actual hostility. in that atmosphere it's easy to misinterpret a sincere comment or question for one that isn't.
