Town Receives $80,000 Grant for Playground Expansion

Governor Dan McKee and the Department of Environmental Management (DEM) today announced the awarding of $2 million in matching grants to 11 municipalities to develop or renovate local outdoor recreational facilities in their communities.  Perennially, the “rec grant” program is DEM’s most popular grant program, with applications this grant cycle seeking nearly five times the available funding. The grant awards will fund 11 projects across the state including new playgrounds, pickleball courts, dog park, splashpads, walking trails, revitalized ballfields and basketball courts, shade pavilions, outdoor performance areas, and various site improvements.

The Town will use the funds to expand the playground and add adult exercise equipment.
