The Connellsville Area Garden Club is working in partnership with the City of Connellsville, the Connellsville Redevelopment Authority, the Fayette County Cultural Trust and other groups to fund this project, via grants, fund raisers and private donations. The renovation is planned and underway. The park, adjacent to the Carnegie Free Library, spans the block along Fairview Avenue and will be transformed with new plants, plantings, trees, and energy efficient lighting. The outdoor amphitheater, benches and tables and an outdoor arboretum will attract new users. A veterans plaza is also being planned.
