2016 Sponsorship/Donation Information


The Walker Township Board of Supervisors is pleased to announce that we have a new Eagle Scout Project at our park.  Mitchell Holden, a Walker Township student, is working with the Park and Recreation Board to solicit sponsorships/donations for additional benches and trees in the park.


In order to maintain a consistent look throughout the park a bench design has been set.  A list of acceptable trees is available on the Township website by clicking on Parks & Recreation/Additional Information or stop by the Township Office.


Mitchell will actively solicit across the township for sponsors and donations.  He will be responsible for working with all donors on bench placement and will install benches and trees.  All items will be marked with a permanent plaque to show appreciation for your gift.  This project will reduce the need to use tax funds for park improvements.  A copy of the Sponsorship and Donation Policy can be found by clicking on Parks & Recreation/Additional Information or you can call the office to receive a copy, 814-383-2859, extension 1.


The cost of a bench and plaque is $800.  Benches and plaques will be ordered by the Township to maintain consistency.  Trees must be provided by the donor.  This is a great time to memorialize a friend or family member with a permanently installed bench or tree.  Groups, organizations, or friends can get together and purchase a bench or tree.  Mitchell will also be installing new benches at the Jonas Panik Quiet Area.  These new benches will be dedicated to veterans affiliated with Walker Township.  A plaque with individual names can also be installed in this area for a minimum donation of $50 per name.  The deadline to have names engraved is July 1, 2016.


To date there is one memorial bench installed in the park.  It was donated by Donna Snyder in memory of her husband, Charles Snyder, who was a former supervisor and member of the Park & Recreation Board in our Township.  A tree located beside the bench was donated by the Nittany Valley Lions Club in memory of members from Walker Township.  Please call the Township Office at 814-383-2859 for a donation form or to ask questions.


Come and check out the walking trail, new bathrooms and many other features located throughout the park.
