PLAYGROUND BUILD DAY!!
Our exciting day of building our new playground is approaching fast. On Saturday June 7th 100 volunteers will be involved with the building of the new playground at the Clinton Township and Factoryville Borough Joint Municipal Park on Creek Road. Please bring your children to participate in kids games from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. This playground is being funded by national non-profit Kaboom and the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. We are the first in this area to receive Kaboom’s Playful City designation and grant funding. Our playground will be the first non school related public playground in both municipalities. This will make our soccer park a destination for even more children. It is an exciting time for us all.
Parking in Christy Mathewson Park:
Please note that parking in Christy Mathewson Park is only permitted for person requiring handicapped parking for the park. All other parking in for the park should be done in the lot at the Elementary Center. The footbridge is a lovely entrance to our park. Parents who are dropping off their children at school should use the procedure provided by the school.
Please remember to clean up after your dogs. We have an ordinance that requires the proper disposal of pet excrements. Please call the Borough office if you have any questions.

The Kaboom non-profit playground organization has awarded a $20,000 grant to the Factoryville Borough and Clinton Township Joint Municipal Park.

The playground design is available to view at the Borough office and a PDF file of the design is available to be emailed upon request.
