J.M. Hall Jr. Community Park Export, PA

JM Hall Park

JM Hall Park is 14 acres donated by local businessman J.M. Hall, Jr. in 2002, prior to his death in 2006. A Master Site Plan for this property was done for future construction for this community resource. In December, visitors can see the former “Westinghouse Christmas Tree and Menorah”, that stood by the Parkway East for many years. A council member purchased this tree at the Westinghouse storage auction and donated it to the Borough.

Export Playground

Export Playground

Export has a wonderful playground.  It is well equipped and sees a high use compared to other local parks.  It is situated in walking distance of hundreds of families and children.  Summer programs for younger children are held there Mon-Wed-Fri 10-2.  The cost is $5 registration, and $1 per day fee which includes a lunch.  The summer program is sponsored by Export council and a number of local businesses including The Italian American Club, Hoy Construction, and the Moose.  The park is maintained through a combination of borough and volunteer efforts.  Local residents and organizations maintain the planters.

Cub Scout Pack 213 does major upkeep twice a year.  Nathan Evanko made the park his Eagle scout project in 2009.  It involved cleaning the creek bed, repainting the dugouts, swing sets, and basketball goals.

The “Export Growers” take care of the planters, and have made a community flower and herb garden.

The park pavilion may be reserved with a $50 deposit which will be returned if everything is in good condition.
