$150K going to Phase 2 of Seaford’s new Oyster House Park
SEAFORD, Del.- A $150,000 will go to support the construction of the new Oyster House Park.
The Carl M. Freeman Foundation is granting the money to the Chesapeake Conservancy.
The park will highlight the downtown Nanticoke River adding walking trails, an oyster house, a museum, an amphitheater, and more.
The first phase of the project was completed on July 1st and donors are being sought to raise more than a million dollars for Phase 2.
This $150,000 grant from the Carl M. Freeman Foundation will be a big help towards that goal.
“It took us over two years knocking on doors raised the funds for the first phase of this foundation, as I said before these are tough times and it’s really hard to raise money for something like this despite the fact that I think its going to help revitalize downtown Seaford,” Randall Larrimore, the chair of the Chesapeake Conservancy, said.
Phase 2 will also include the completion of road drainage improvements, which will address runoff for the area.
