PHIFER ICE DAM PARK

The Phifer Ice Dam Park is Franklin Township’s community park. The closest thing to “HOME” for the Franklin Lions Club. The site of the Daniel Lesher Pavilion, Getz Memorial Band Shell, and the Franklin Kids’ Creation Playground; all past Lions projects.  The Lions club are also responsible for constructing the covered bridge across the dam spillway, installing lamp posts throughout the park, planting trees and shrubs, plus  numerous other projects.

The Daniel Lesher Pavilion is a great place to have a family reunion or other gathering.  To learn how to reserve the pavilion go to Reserving the Pavilion page.
