A Murrysville official wants to make Pleasant Valley Park officially part of the municipal parks.

Council President Joan Kearns last week proposed bringing the park into the municipal park system.

“This last step has never been taken,” Kearns said. “It is a well-used facility. It needs to come into the parks system, once and for all.”

The green space — which, technically, is not a park by municipal standards — is one of 14 park areas in the municipality. Eight are community parks and maintained by the municipality.

The 262-acre Pleasant Valley Park is maintained by volunteers with assistance from the municipality, Chief Administrator Jim Morrison said.

Council Vice President Rege Synan suggested waiting until all seven council members were present to make a decision. Councilmen Ron Summerhill and Bill Vance were absent from last week's council meeting.
