Calling all park lovers! Tomorrow starts a new month and our 2017 On Your Park, Get Set, GO! Contest. From July 1st through July 31st, you can support your local park by voting to help it win grant funds for improvements! This year, we have 12 local municipalities who have entered a park into the contest.
2017 Participating Parks:
1.) Amity Township, Berks County, PA- Amity Community Park
2.) Borough of Boyertown-Boyertown Community Park - Boyertown Parks & Recreation

Explore not only your local park, but several other parks throughout the region! Those who wish to parKticipate must reside within the Foundation's service area.
There are two ways to vote:
1.) Take a selfie at the parks (ONE selfie permitted, per person, per day, per park) and upload it to the Foundation's Facebook page.
2.) Drop a registered ticket in the white voting boxes located in the parks. Pre-registration is now closed for the contest, but you can still parKticipate by heading to your municipal building (only the 12 parKticipating municipalities will have ticket packets) to pick up a ticket packet and map. You will then need to register your tickets here.
Round up your family and friends and get back head to the park! For more information and contest rules, visit here.
Tomorrow, July 1st, the race officially begins. On Your Park, Get Set, GO!
