A big grant from the state of Pennsylvania will go a long way in helping a park in Roxborough (WPVI)

A historic park in the city's Roxborough section has received a state grant for a much-needed makeover.

State Senator Vincent Hughes presented a symbolic check for 188 thousand dollars Thursday.

It will go toward renovations and upgrades to the park, which sits along Ridge Avenue.

Gorgas park is more than 120 years old.
