Dallas Township is seeking another round of public input after receiving a grant for master plans for Dallas Township Park and Kunkle Park. Barry Isett & Associates (Isett), a multi-discipline engineering firm with offices in Wilkes Barre and Hazleton, was contracted to prepare the plans.
A combined study committee and public meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, at 6:30 p.m., in the Dallas Township Municipal Building located at 2919 SR 309 Highway, in Dallas. The meeting will provide an overview of the project to date, summary of the public survey results, review concept plans for Dallas Township Park, and will be followed by a question and answer session. Township residents are strongly encouraged to attend.
Dallas Township Park, located off Southside Avenue and Lakeside Drive adjacent to PA 309, is a small, multi-use public park situated amongst residential neighborhoods in close proximity to central Dallas Borough. The park features a baseball field, basketball court, playground, and hiking trails. Kunkle Park is a large, quiet park located off Old Tunkhannock Highway. It features a large open space, that was previously used as a baseball field, and a moderately difficult hiking trail loop in native mature woodland. Both parks are open to the public from dawn until dusk.
More information regarding the public meeting can be found by contacting the municipal office at 570-674-2000, ext. 2008 during business hours.
