Harborcreek Township recently acquired 1.56 acres of land adjacent to Shorewood Park along Lake Erie.  The township has been attempting to acquire the property for several years and in September 2011 was awarded 80% of the appraised value of the land ($357,000.00) from the National Scenic Byways Project – with Harborcreek Township responsible for the additional 20%.  While there is certainly limited Lake Erie Shoreline left in Erie County, Harborcreek Township Supervisors agreed to go forward with the purchase of the property to add to the Parks Department inventory.  While final details of the property acquisition were underway, Supervisors applied for an additional grant through the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources – Bureau of Recreation and Conservation (DCNR) to supplement the balance to complete closing.  To the delight of the Harborcreek Supervisors in December of 2013, DCNR awarded additional funds in the amount of $88,000.00 to Harborcreek Township.  In essence, the complete acquisition of land along Lake Erie was completely funded through grants – with no direct costs to Harborcreek residents.

It is the intention of the Harborcreek Parks Department to make general cleanup of the newly acquired property this Summer and make it usable to township residents.  In addition, the township plans to continue look for possible grant and funding opportunities to create a Master Site Plan for the future development of Shorewood Park.  In the meantime, please enjoy a new addition to the Harborcreek Parks System.
