Canal Day is a lot of fun. You can sit back and enjoy music along the Schuylkill River and Canal. Watch or be apart of the running and canoe races or just try out some kayaks on the river. There will be 4 opening of Lock 60. Food and kids games will also be available. I have been enjoying Canal Day for the last 10 year and always enjoy this event.

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
