More improvements are coming to Central Park. Memorial trees, park benches, and picnic tables will be added. The trees will be planted in September and October, with benches and tables installed then or in the Spring.
The next task is improvements to the children’s playground, which
Citizens for Central Park will undertake with the town. The town recently replaced the wooden fence that was deteriorating, and with it also expanded the playground area to include shade trees and more space.
Hank Mayer, president of Citizens for Central Park told the Mirror, “We are hoping to replace the Zip-Line and add 1-2 new units, as well as provide greater shade over existing units. We will also add several picnic tables by the trees. We’re hoping to do this work later this year or in the Spring, depending on finances.
Our plan is to install adult-oriented games in the SE corner of the Park, including bocce ball and shuffleboard courts, a cornhole game, along with additional trees and picnic tables. This is a 2020 project, as we would like the town to share the cost of these Park improvements with CCP.”
