On Wednesday, August 3, 2022, Ferguson Township hosted its first ever “Municipal Mixer” event at Greenbriar-Saybrook Park!
The purpose of this event was for the Township, in coordination with HRG, to gain feedback from neighborhood residents about amenities they would like to see at Greenbriar Saybrook Park in the future as the Township conducts its master plan for Ferguson Parks.
In addition to offering an opportunity for public input on the future of Greenbriar-Saybrook Park, the event placed an emphasis on pedestrian and cycling safety. Ferguson Township Police were on-site to host a cycling safety and training course for younger riders at the park.
Representatives from Penn State Transportation Services were also in attendance to highlight offerings such as the Penn State Bike Den, along with representatives from Penn State’s Spin e-Bike Share Program to inform attendees of these services and details of these programs. A bike mechanic from The Bicycle Shop was also present to overview bicycles for safety and maintenance, along with a bike registration station provided by the Penn State Bike Den.
The Sunset Slush Happy Valley food truck was also present to allow residents to cool down at the hot event with an ice cold snow cone!
And to top it all off, the Ferguson Township Public Works Department attended and hosted "Touch-A-Truck" for younger attendees to see the inside of a real public works vehicle!
The Township would like to thank residents for great attendance at this event and being engaged in their community parks! Be on the lookout for future events like this at other parks in the Township as we work to gather feedback for our Master Plan!
