A new “Play Express” train play set has been added to the Sutersville community park after the Westmoreland County Land Bank demolished an abandoned property and expanded the property. The work was paid for through a grant from the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. In addition to the land bank, Sutersville Borough and the Redevelopment Authority of Westmoreland County were involved in the project.

A new “Play Express” train play set has been added to the Sutersville community park after the Westmoreland County Land Bank demolished an abandoned property and expanded the property. The work was paid for through a grant from the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful. In addition to the land bank, Sutersville Borough and the Redevelopment Authority of Westmoreland County were involved in the project.

Children in Sutersville have a new playground to climb on after a park expansion, according to the Westmoreland County Land Bank.

The “Play Express” is a four piece train set that includes a tunnel and small slide at the town’s community park on First Avenue, the land bank announced this week.

An abandoned house next to an existing part of the park was demolished last year and the site was expanded to house the train set and other play areas.

A tanker and engine car have been installed and funding is still needed for two more pieces of the train set, the announcement said. The equipment is for children ages 2 to 5.

The demolition, park expansion and playground equipment were funded by the land bank, donations and grants from the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.

To find out more information on how to sponsor the playground equipment, call Shelby Michalek at 724-830-3085 or email [email protected]

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
