Students from the Susquehanna County Career and Technology Center are using their newly acquired skills to help create a welcoming space in one of Susquehanna Depot’s downtown “Pocket Parks.”
The “Pocket Park” located at Main St. and Franklin Ave. is owned by PennDot and is the former location of the Post Office/Persons’ building.
There has been a true team effort to transform this once vacant lot into a place where residents and visitors can relax and enjoy the downtown.
Students from the SCCTC Carpentry & Cabinetmaking department have built two benches and two tables that include seating and painted game boards.
The students from the welding department have created metal silhouettes that have historic significance to the community and will be mounted on the perimeter of the park.
Susquehanna Borough has entered into an agreement with PennDOT to utilize the property and has provided insurance and weed material.
The Susquehanna Community Development Association had purchased and laid decorative stone and will provide informational signage associated with each silhouette.
