From the website: http://schuylkillwinefestival.com/history-of-wine-festival/. The Hegins Park was established in 1865. Trustees were elected from Religious, Fraternal and Social organizations to make up the Hegins Park Association that continues to oversee the care and upkeep of the Park. Pavilions, Seats, Dining Room, Kitchen and Refreshment buildings were constructed in the 1930’s. Water, Electricity and Playground equipment was installed. Funds were never solicited from businesses or private individuals. Fundraising was planned by the Park Association and has taken many forms through the years. This included the Hegins Homecoming, Band Concerts, and the Labor Day Pigeon Shoots, which kept the Park in outstanding condition through many years. Today the Park provides 5 Ball fields, Volleyball, Tennis, and Basketball courts, various Pavilions, 2 Stages with seating, adequate parking, and spacious grounds with shaded areas and sunny fields. The town pool is adjacent to the Park.
