Borough of Quakertown Begins Revitalization Efforts of popular Panther Playground

Post Date:03/15/2019

Quakertown Borough has begun revitalization efforts of the popular destination playground, Panther Playground. Panther Playground was built by community volunteers in 1993, and has been home to many memories throughout the years. Unfortunately, Panther Playground is closing on its useful lifespan, and is becoming unsafe, and unfit for play. The Quakertown Borough Parks and Recreation Department has begun a Panther Playground Revitalization Project to replace the existing playground. The borough is currently in the planning stages of the project, but it is tentatively scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020.

While it is sad to see Panther Playground come down after many years, the Borough looks forward to introducing the community to new and all-inclusive concepts that the park will feature. The Borough plans to update community members on the stages of revitalization, and encourages community members to stay tuned for opportunities to participate in the revitalization of the park. Until the closure of Panther Playground, Public Works will be inspecting the playground routinely, and ask that you report any seen dangers or concerns to Borough Hall at 215-536-5001.
