Area children will be able to enjoy a new playground at Kohler Park in Horsham by spring, officials said.
The township's public works employees have removed the old equipment and are in the process of building a new picnic pavilion now, according to Township Manager Bill Walker.
"They can do it in winter as long as there's no snow or ice," Walker said.
Mark Hudson, Horsham's Parks and Recreation Director, said the legs of the pavilion are in place.
"If the weather keeps with us hopefully we’ll have it done by the end of the month," Hudson said.
Once the pavilion is complete, Hudson said installing the new playground would be the next step. He expects that to wrap up around springtime.
New restrooms would be installed in September or October, Walker said, adding that he expects this last phase to be complete by Nov. 1.
The $300,000 park project has been in the works for about two years. from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The Horsham Rotary Club committed in 2011 to raising and contributing $75,000 and Horsham Township chipped in the remaining $80,500.
Walker said the Rotary recently gave the township its part and the state has so far doled out half of its funding.
