To support the completion of Lions Pride Park, ShopRite of Warminster has agreed to hold a fundraising campaign to raise awareness and collect donations for the park. The store, located at 942 W. Street Road, Warminster, is collecting donations at checkout counters through the end of March.
Lions Pride Park began construction in the fall. The park is expected to open this spring. ShopRite cashiers and managers are well-versed in the amenities and different features of the park and are able to answer shoppers’ questions about Lions Pride Park, which will be a multi-generational park and has been designed with full accessibility as its main focus.
Organizers of the park say it will be a unique attraction in the region providing recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities.
Lions Pride Park was once the site of the Twin Oaks Day Camp and is being converted into a state-of-the art, 17-acre recreational, educational and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant park for visitors of all ages and all abilities.
The Warrington Township Lions Club, with support from community partners, has raised over $1.65 million to date and hopes to raise the remaining funds with the help of the ShopRite fundraiser.
“We are very appreciative of ShopRite and Cowhey Family supermarkets for their commitment and willingness to support Lions Pride Park as a regional destination,” said Barry Luber, Warrington Township manager.
The park is under construction at Folly and Bradley Roads in Warrington Township. It will be fully accessible and will include Kids Mountain, The Grove, and a walking trail around the park that connects to other township walking paths. The park will enhance the local environment with features like a recently completed rain garden and a future pond to wetland conversion that will have value for biodiversity and educational purposes.
Donations for the park are also being accepted at lionspridepark.org/donate.
