LIMERICK PA – Linfield Sports Park, a 17-1/2-acre Limerick (PA) Township recreational facility with a softball field, sports pavilion and multipurpose field will be upgraded later this year by adding more softball fields, and multi-purpose fields for lacrosse and soccer. Its pavilion will also be upgraded.
“We are looking forward to the upgrades that will come in 2011, so that additional teams will be able to use our fields, and families and organizations can use the pavilions,” the township’s former Board of Supervisors Chairman Kenneth W. Sperring Jr. said.
The park was purchased earlier this year with the help of a $150,000 contribution from Exelon Nuclear. Exelon’s “Limerick Generating Station (LGS) contribution to the township has helped us greatly over the past few years to upgrade our recreational facilities for the good of all of our residents,” Sperring added.
Other Exelon contributions have also been used to refurbish Manderach Memorial Playground, and support the township’s summer concert series and Limerick Community Day. Funds have also been given to the Linfield and Limerick Fire companies, and helped pay for the expansion of the Limerick Township Police Department building.
It’s important “to everyone at Limerick Generating Station that we are a good neighbor, and are able to partner with Limerick Township to provide excellent recreational facilities for area residents,” said Bill Maguire, the LGS site vice president. Many LGS employees “live in this community and are able to benefit from the facilities that Limerick Township provides, making this area a great place to live, work and raise a family,” Maguire said.
