Clifford Township in Susquehanna County recently expanded its Township Community Park thanks in part to a DCNR grant. The East Branch of the Tunkhannock Creek flows through the park. The land acquisition adds 11 acres and another 1,000 feet of creek frontage to the facility. The township also installed a new pedestrian bridge to improve access to the new expansion. “Clifford appreciates DCNR’s support,” writes Sally Fischbeck, chair of the Clifford Township Planning Commission. “People have enjoyed hiking the paths on the new land and fishing the extra part of the East Tunkhannock Creek. It was such a key acquisition for the park.” DCNR supported the park expansion with $32,000 from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund.
