All sorts of things bloom in Apriil, including two public workshops on a couple of parks in Lower Merion Township. Residents are invited to come, hear information about the parks' master plans, and share their thoughts on the parks.

The meetings, said township director of parks and recreation Lindsay Taylor, "will provide citizens with an opportunity to learn about the master planning process and to participate."

The first workshop, on Shortridge Memorial Park in Wynnewood, will be Monday, April 22, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at St. Katherine School, 930 Bowman Ave., Wynnewood. Merion Botanical Park will be discussed Tuesday, April 30, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Merion Tribute House, 625 Hazelhurst Ave., Merion Station. Township officials say a survey also is being prepared, which will be mailed to residents, as another way to participate in the park planning process. The surveys must be completed and returned by April 30.

Contact the parks and rec department at 610-645-6220 or online at for more information.
