Do you have ideas for a new park in Ambler Borough? Let us know!

In 2016 the Borough of Ambler acquired a vacant property at the corner of E. Butler Avenue and E. Park Avenue.
At the recommendation of the Ambler Planning Commission, Borough Council supported the
pursuit of transforming this empty paved lot into a small community park, or a "pocket park".

The Borough has requested assistance from the Montgomery County Planning Commission to help plan for the new park. In the coming weeks and months, the Borough and MCPC will rely on support from Ambler residents and neighbors to help turn this vision for a great new public amenity into a reality!
 
Your participation in this quick survey will give us valuable insight about how we can develop this new public space to best meet the needs of the community. This is your chance to help shape Ambler's newest park and the events that will be held there in the future, so please take a few moments to complete the full survey, and don't forget to leave additional comments if you have them.

We are also looking for a name for the new park, so be sure to share your pick at the bottom of the survey!
 
We encourage you to attend Borough Council and Planning Commission meetings when the pocket park is on the agenda for discussion if you have questions or would like to get more involved. You may also direct questions to:

Frank DeRuosi with Ambler Borough Council at frankderuosi@gmail.com
Glenn Kucher with Ambler Borough Code Enforcement at code@borough.ambler.pa.us
Lauren Van Dyk with the Montgomery County Planning Commission at lvandyk@montcopa.org
 
 Please note that the survey will close at midnight on Sunday March 26th.
So don't wait, get your answers in today!
