[ARCHIVED] Great parks provide big impact

Parks attract people. And along with people, they also attract spending. A recent economic study examining the impact of Cranberry’s parks confirmed that conclusion, according to Parks & Recreation Director Pete Geis. In a presentation to Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors on January 26, Geis noted that in 2015 the Township's parks, golf course and Municipal Center saw 1.5 million visits including both visits by Township residents and guests visiting Cranberry from other locations. They generated an economic impact in excess of $5 million in 2015 alone, mostly spent on local stores, restaurants and hotels. To accommodate the growing use of its Parks, the Township has been making strategic investments in its municipal park network – partnering with Cranberry Township Community Chest, CTCC, in adding playgrounds, fitness stations, and a fishing lake, as well as enlarging the pool, extending the trail system, increasing the parking, and adding amenities like the Seneca Village sculpture tableau. This year, a major expansion of Graham Park’s amenities is underway. Partnering with CTCC, the Township is undertaking Phase II of the park, at its previously undeveloped southern end. Ground was broken for the project in October, and a complex of venues for court games, called the CTCC SportCourts at Graham Park, is expected to be completed and ready for use this fall.
