Malvern Borough in Chester County recently cut the ribbon on improvements at Horace J. Quann Park.
The park, described by Chester County Commissioners as a treasured gem for the community, has an updated basketball court, baseball field, sidewalk, fencing, and trees.
The Malvern Environmental Advisory Council also added a rain garden to the park to help with stormwater runoff.
“The pandemic showed everyone how valuable open space is to a community,” DCNR regional advisor Drew Gilchrist said at the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
DCNR supported the renovations with a $92,500 grant. Funding came from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund.
