DoverPhila Federal Credit Union has partnered with the New Philadelphia Rotary Club to provide a $5,000 donation that will go towards a project to enhance the pond at Tuscora Park.
The monetary donation along with other donations from area organizations will go towards the construction of a boardwalk stretching 140 feet across the pond and features a gazebo and a plaza that are both handicap accessible. The construction’s design will provide a convenient seating area for visitors, shade for daytime comfort, and decorative lighting for evening enjoyment. The overall goal of the project is a more ideal park experience through an enhanced, scenic view of the pond and its wildlife.
New Philadelphia Rotary hopes to raise enough funds by the end of the year to start the project so the dedication can coincide with Tuscora Park’s 100th anniversary on Memorial Day 2017.
The Rotary carries out its Tuscora Park efforts through the nonprofit RTY, Inc., which is recognized as a tax-exempt organization under Internal Revenue Service rule 501(c)(3).
