Saint Francis University, Cambria County
The park is a multi-use community facility that promotes health and fitness while celebrating the historical, religious, and cultural heritage of Loretto. The site is also used by Saint Francis University for environmental education, wellness education, and stewardship training.
The park is handicapped accessible and includes picnic tables, grills, benches, bike racks, restrooms, walking paths, fitness stations, and playground equipment. Additionally, interpretive signs are stationed throughout the park with local historical information. Signage, detailing the local environment habitat, is complemented by an outdoor classroom, rain gardens, and native plantings.
To ensure expansion, our team designed the Park Master Plan, which allows for future wetland boardwalks and hiking trails that connect to the Saint Francis University campus.
I probably don’t say this enough, but we so appreciate the quality of work Keller Engineers does. The fact that they include building footprints and natural features makes these surveys super useful. I’m reminding my colleagues in other counties that their surveyors need to up their quality. F. Mark Schiavone, Executive Director Berkeley County Farmland Protection Board
