A. A. Garthwaite Stadium Getting a New Wall

During last night’s meeting of Conshohocken’s Borough Council there was a discussion about a new wall being constructed around A. A. Garthwaite Stadium on East 11th Avenue. In this year’s budget there is $350,000 budgeted for the wall.

The example to the left is a wall built brick by brick. The right is a prefabricated wall. These are just samples, there are variations available on the type of brick or block, color, etc.


The discussion was about whether members of Borough Council wanted to consider a prefabricated wall or one constructed on site. The difference in price was estimated to be about $100,000, with the prefabricated wall quoted to come in under budget by $25,000.

Members of council learned toward the prefabricated wall, but there were some questions about the longevity, warranty, and what type/color of brick or block would be used. The final determination will be made at a later date.

One thing brought up by Council member Bob Stokley was that the stadium isn’t used enough and should be open to the public more. He suggested that a walking path should be put in around the field.
