RESTORE RIVERSIDE PARK

SERVING GREENVILLE / NORTHERN MERCER COUNTY

AMOUNT DONATED: 34,878

Restore Riverside Park is a non-profit volunteer group established in 2018 to revamp the Plimpton Graul Amphitheater in Riverside Park, Greenville PA. This project was completed in 2020 and stands testimony to what can be done when a group of individuals have a goal and the will to complete it. The group is now restoring Riverside Park to a usable and viable recreational facility. Our committee consists of a group of retired individuals who have seen the need and have the desire to help. Our motto is “ Dream big, work hard, stay focused, and surround ourselves with good people

Greenville has experienced rough times. Many of the companies that had been headquartered in Greenville left town, and the town faced many challenges. One of the first places to cut money was that money used to maintain and improve Riverside Park. Time and neglect took its toll. During the summer of 2020, many people looked to Riverside Park as a refuge from Covid-19. However, trees planted in the 30's are now in poor condition and waterways have become swollen with vegetation. The park is no longer a usable environment for recreation. The work that is being done in the park is expensive, and the funds are very limited. The Restore Riverside Park Committee is relying on grants and individual donations to complete the project. While donors have been very generous in both time, talent, and treasure, we need more funding to complete what needs to be done. Our mission is to remove and/or prune 230 dangerous trees in the park, then to replace a dilapidated basketball court, build three pickleball courts, put in a kayak launch and rebuild a damaged bridge that connects the park to biking and walking trails

  Needs that Cannot beMet without Your Help  

Greenville has experienced economic stress since 1983. Major businesses that used to be the lifeblood of this community started to leave, and like many towns in western PA, community needs outnumbered the resources available. Community parks are not a priority when money is tight, yet during the Covid19 pandemic, it has become very apparent that outdoor greenspace and recreational facilities are needed for communities to thrive. We have the support from the community to complete this project; however, we lack the funds needed. Your contribution will allow us to make the restoration of Riverside Park in Greenville a reality.
