UGI Employee Volunteers Enhance Long’s Park During Clean-Up
03 Aug 2017
Eleven UGI employees and family members participated in a clean-up and repair of Long’s Park, Harrisburg Pike, Lancaster during a recent community initiative. Employees and their families cleaned the park grounds, weeded gardens and painted a gazebo during the effort.
Long’s Park is an 80-acre city park that was bequeathed to the City of Lancaster in 1900 by Judge Henry Grimly Long and his daughter, Catherine Long. Each year, the park is home to a host of activities including a free summer music series, a nationally acclaimed fine art festival and the world’s largest chicken barbecue. Long’s Park also boasts other outdoor amenities including picnic pavilions, a petting farm, children’s playgrounds, a three-acre, spring fed lake, tennis courts and a fitness trail.
UGI’s West Region employees, located in Lancaster and Harrisburg, targeted the park clean-up as a valuable way to give back to the community.
