Through its Lend a Hand Program, Mericle employees and their families volunteered their time to make upgrades to the park on Saturday, June 1.
Mericle, in cooperation with officials from Hughestown Borough, made improvements and installed new equipment throughout the park.
Mericle Senior Vice President Bryan McManus served as project manager. He said Mericle donated labor and equipment that makes the park more appealing to area families. McManus said improvements included seal coating and striping the basketball and tennis courts, hanging new basketball nets, installing four new picnic tables and new playground equipment, mulching the entire playground area, reinforcing shade shelters, adding new trash receptacles, installing multiple signs, raking and reshaping the walking track, extensive painting, and much more.
In recent years, Mericle completed similar upgrades at Spadi Park in Jenkins Township, Orioles’ Park and Bryden Park in Pittston Township, and the Jessup Youth Sports Complex in Jessup Borough.
McManus thanked Hughestown Borough Council and the Hughestown Park and Recreation Committee for their help with the project. He also thanked M. Mayo Striping for donating to the basketball court and tennis court upgrades.
