A park dedication ceremony will be conducted to honor the lfe of Henry R. Chiaramonte, a young resident of Oreland who passed away on April 10, 2017 from Sudden Unexpected Death in Childhood, or "SUDC".
Henry R. Chiaramonte Children's Park is a small tot lot located in the 300 block of Oreland Mill Road, Oreland. The park was constructed in 2010 as part of a larger neighborhood drainage project. As part of this work, a small tot lot was created to allow families with small children to enjoy recreation and open space within the community. Funding for the tot lot was provided through the Montgomery County Open Space Preservation Program.
On July 12, 2017, the Board of Commissioners of Springfield Township re-named the tot lot, formerly known as "Oreland Park," to "Henry R. Chiaramonte Children's Park" to allow young Henry's legacy of friendship and happiness to continue, and to bring awareness to Sudden Unexpected Death in Childhood to other Springfield Township families.
Please join the Board of Commissioners and the Chiaramonte family for the park re-dedication on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at 1:00 PM.
