GREEN LANE, PA – Montgomery County Parks, Trails, and Historic Sites has announced a series of public meetings and other interactive public feedback tools to inform the master plan update for Green Lane Park. All interested citizens are invited to attend and provide feedback.
Public input on potential improvements to enhance and protect Green Lane Park’s recreational amenities will be accepted during four public meetings over the next year. Park users can also provide feedback through completing an online survey, adding to a Wikimap, or contributing to the iNaturalist and eBird apps for Green Lane Park.
The first public meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 5, 2023, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Green Lane Borough Hall. The meeting will take place in the 2nd Floor Banquet Hall located at 214 Main Street, Green Lane, PA 18054. Additional meetings will be held in September 2023, December 2023, and March 2024. Residents can check the County website for additional details and information. Meetings are hybrid so attendees can attend in person or virtually.
The County has retained Simone Collins Landscape Architecture of Norristown as lead consultant and is being assisted by Resource Environmental Services, Seiler + Drury Architects and Patrick Stasio, CPRP, to assist the County in developing the plan.
The 16-month long public planning process for the master plan update began in January 2023 and will conclude in April 2024. The Master Plan project is partially funded by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnership Program administered by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.
About Green Lane Park
Green Lane Park is in the northwest portion of Montgomery County, and touches seven municipalities – Green Lane Borough, Marlborough Township, New Hanover Township, Pennsburg Borough, Red Hill Borough, Upper Frederick Township, and Upper Hanover Township. The park is Montgomery County’s largest park, at approximately 3,400 acres, and is home to a variety of landscapes and three bodies of water – Green Lane Reservoir, Deep Creek Lake, and Knight Lake. Today's Green Lane Park is the result of Montgomery County and AQUA America’s collaborative efforts over a 40-year period.
The park offers a variety of year-round, outdoor activities and programs. Park visitors can enjoy fishing, boating (including boat rentals), family and group camping, picnicking, 25 miles of trails for horseback riding, mountain biking and hiking, as well as two children's playgrounds. Winter enthusiasts can cross-country ski, ice fish or go ice skating, weather permitting. The park also offers summer concerts and family-oriented, environmental education programs.
