Paint for public bathroom.
The playground area will occupy a 6700 square feet area where the existing ball field is located. It will house six different slides, several climbing areas, a rock wall, swing set, and seesaw. The dog park area will be located where the tennis/basketball court was located. It will occupy a 3000 square feet fenced in area with agility equipment and a separate play area for smaller dogs.
Project phases will consist of the following:
Land clearing, tree/stump removal and removal of court area
Drainage installation, ground leveling and running services to the dog park area
Installation of new roofing materials and paint
Installation of agility area for dogs
A tentative date for re-opening is scheduled for late September and is weather dependent. Individuals who plan on renting the park this year shall expect times when the park will be closed to visitors. Please contact the Borough Office in advance to check on park availability.
