Dear readers and parks/rec enthusiasts,
I’d like to draw your attention to a miniature golf course that is planned behind the Carousel building on King Street in Pottstown. I’d heard about the mini-golf in my conversations with Eileen Schlegel, Director of Parks and Recreation. The Carousel building will be the home of the Parks & Rec. Department when completed. Apparently, this was all discussed at the Borough’s Committee-of-the-Whole meeting last night, and that’s why I thought I’d mention it now.
This whole project – right across from Memorial Park – really could do wonders to make the King St. gateway more attractive. I know people have been kind of disappointed so far. The Carousel may not be the be-all and end-all of revitalization, but it doesn’t have to be; it just has to pull its own weight. When it does that, it will be an excellent addition to the recreational opportunities that Pottstown offers, a real draw for visitors and a major visual improvement to that gateway.
The article that I came across is actually about a Carousel ornament that’s now for sale for $20. Check out the video, support the effort and get started on your holiday shopping now!
