RVE Attends Seip Park Phase I Ribbon Cutting and Phase II Groundbreaking Ceremony

The Borough of Pennsburg held a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the completion of the Seip Park Phase I, which consisted of a Tot Lot play area and ADA accessible walking trail on the property of Pennsburg Borough Hall. RVE provided engineering design and the Borough received funding through the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Grant. The ceremony was attended by Pennsburg Council, Mayor, Seip family members, RVE and State Representative Milou MacKenzie.

Additionally, a groundbreaking ceremony was held to begin work on Phase II. The Phase II work consists of paving the walking trail, installing a covered pavilion and the installation of exercise equipment and stations along the walking trail.

RVE performed a topographic survey to locate all features of the project area, developed engineering design plans, obtained all clearances required by the grant program, performed site visits and field evaluations and obtained plan approvals. Grading was particularly important in ensuring that the entirety of the walking trail and all features of the park are ADA compliant.

The Seip Park Tot Lot project has already had a positive impact on the community. Residents and children currently visit the park to utilize the walking trail while the kids enjoy the new playground equipment, all of this on previously undeveloped and unused land. The project provides a gathering place for residents and their families to come together and enjoy the Borough of Pennsburg.
