Bardascino Park in Bella Vista
Have you visited Bardascino Park in Bella Vista lately? What a difference from a few years ago! I remember broken benches, dead trees, overflowing trash cans, pet waste, illegal household trash and a bocce court that looked more like a pitcher’s mound. Well a lot has changed thanks to the Friends of Bardascino Park, Department of Recreation and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Philadelphia Green.
After several years of small scale improvements, the Friends’ of Bella Vista dream of a major renovation came true. Bardascino Park in Bella Vista was one of the twelve parks chosen by the Department of Recreation for capital improvements as part of a major grant that the Department received from the PA Department of Natural Resources.
Friends’ worked with the Department of Recreation on their renovations. The concrete surface was replaced with beautiful pavers. A second flower bed was added along 10th Street, new benches and tables were installed, a new bocce court, a tool shed and 2 new trees were planted. The park is truly a transferred space.
The league consists of 24 two-person teams and is open to the public. There is no restriction to age or sex. Registration takes place in early May and teams play 4 times over the course of the summer. The Friends also organize free summer concerts in June and July. The Friends Of Bardascino Park are volunteers dedicated to maintaining a beautifying the park for our community. Check out website for other activities in Bardascino Park in Bella Vista.
