Antietam Lake Park Public Meeting -- Berks County Residents Invited!

A public meeting is scheduled for:

Monday, June 21, 2010
7:00-9:00 PM

Lower Alsace Township Municipal Building
1200 Carsonia Avenue, Reading, PA 19606

Berks County is in the process of developing a Master Plan for Antietam Lake Park. The Master Plan will provide a blueprint for future improvements to the park and expanded recreation opportunities for Berks County residents.

If you would like to bicycle or walk to this County Park -- and leave your car at home -- make sure to suggest that the plan include how bicyclists and pedestrians will come and go -- safely and conveniently. A transportation plan to the facility won't be complete without accomodating all modes!

You are invited to attend an evening brainstorming session to voice your thoughts and ideas on the prefinal master plan for Antietam Lake Park. Public input will be incorporated into the design process and will help to establish priorities for future development and conservation. Mark your calendars and plan to attend.

Share this invitation with others. If unable to attend, and want to contribute, please forward your comments to Chris Lessig, Director, Berks County Parks & Recreation,


  1. Voice your ideas for pedestrian and bicyclist activity. Would you like to see a bike park with lanes similiar/better than Stonecliff Park or the bike park in Allentown next to the Velodrome? Expanded/Improved trail system connecting communities?

    No, I would not like to see lanes similar to stone cliff. go to stone cliff if you want that. Antietam is the best mt biking and hiking in the county. lets keep it that way.
