SCA Hosting St. Patrick’s Day Hike and Treasure Hunt

On Sunday, March 21st, the Schuylkill Canal Association is hosting a St. Patrick’s Day Hike and Treasure Hunt:
Join SCA and our friends as we celebrate the beginning of spring with one of our annual favorites – the St. Patrick’s Day Hike and Treasure Hunt.

Hikers will start the afternoon off at 1:00 PM meeting in the parking lot behind the Pickering Creek Inn, at the end of Bridge Street in Phoenixville. The group will walk from Phoenixville, across the Schuylkill River and down the towpath to Lock 60.

Upon reaching the Lock 60 picnic grove, children of all ages can join in with a Treasure Hunt. Gold coins will be scattered throughout the field to be gathered by the children; the coins are then turned in for prizes at the Locktender’s House after the hunt.

The Locktender’s House is open to all from 1 to 4 PM. Meadowlark, a well-known duo - Jansen Wendell and Elisa Lang - will perform Irish music for all to enjoy inside the house.

Come to learn a little bit about the history of the Schuylkill Navigation System. Enjoy some light refreshments and check out what the Schuylkill Canal Association is doing to preserve this “little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow” well into the future.

And, don’t miss the lock opening at 3 PM, weather permitting!

Visitors of all ages are welcome

Come and enjoy the afternoon free of charge, however donations will gladly be accepted.

For more information, please call 610-917-0021 or visit us at www.schuylkillcanal.org

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
