Polk Valley Playground Will Open Friday

The new playground at Polk Valley Park in Lower Saucon Township will open to the public on Friday, June 5, township officials announced in a news release Tuesday. The playground includes a covered play structure and a swing set surrounded by rubberized mulch. Grass has been seeded around the new ADA-accessible equipment, but it has been slow to germinate due to the lack (until recently) of rain. For that reason, “the township is requesting that children and visitors utilize the paved walkways to access the site,” the release said. Adjacent to the new play equipment is a large pavilion that will be outfitted with picnic tables for use by members of the public.
