DCNR secretary stresses need for investing in parks

Investing heavily in Pennsylvania’s state parks and recreational areas would be money well spent, state and local officials emphasized during an Oct. 12 news conference in Yardley Borough.

Gathering on the banks of the Delaware Canal, which is part of the state parks system, they said the $75 million in infrastructure needs for the canal is one piece of $1.4 billion in repairs and improvements needed statewide.

The 58.9-mile Delaware Canal, originally constructed in 1827, stretches from Easton in Northampton County to Bristol in Bucks County.
