If you have been recently been to you may have noticed the pond has a brand new look.
"We have been wanting to do this project for about two years now," said Friends of Tamanend Park Secretary Shirlee Sherman. "We asked the township for the funding, and so far they have provided us with what we need."
Those funds have paid for several upgrades, both practical and cosmetic, at one of the park's main attractions.
Sherman said when the work began earlier this spring the first thing that was done was that everything was removed from the pond, including the wildlife.
She said after all of the animals and frogs were taken to the Churchville Nature Center, everything was removed and the pond was dredged. Then, the drainage ditch that runs through the bed of the pond was widened. Lastly, the boulders and rocks were placed and plants were planted around the perimeter.
Sherman said the final step will be to install an aerator, to help circulate the pond water. She said the staff is currently working to decide which model will best serve their purposes.
"We are very pleased with the outcome," said Sherman. "We hope everyone will come out and enjoy the pond for many years to come."
While the staff encourages everyone to enjoy the pond, they do ask that you refrain from climbing on the rocks or disrupting the plants around the perimeter.
According to officials, the township has contributed approximately $12,000 for the pond renovation since 2010.
