Playground Update

Build Day

Our community playground build day was a huge success!!  Many thanks to the over 100 volunteers who came to assemble slides, roofs, and climbers, dig holes, pour concrete, and serve food and beverages!  Thanks also goes to several local businesses who donated food and beverages to nourish our busy workers:  Dunkin Donuts, Hannaford, O’Slattery’s Irish Pub, Perfect Blend, Romo’s, Shop Rite, and Swifty’s.  It was a most rewarding day!

Playground Committee

An eager group of residents came forth several months ago to help the department select a vendor, design the playground, and plan the community build day.  We are truly grateful for their efforts and commitment to this project:
Laura DiBetta, Jason Gallo, Jessica Kansas, Derick King, Christine Magill, Jayne Maloney, Brian McCaffrey, and Caren Stark.

Next Steps

While much has been accomplished, much is still to do before opening the playground.  Your patience is appreciated as our staff works diligently to complete the assembly and add the surface material.  We will open it as soon as possible and then have a formal ribbon cutting event sometime in October!

Old Playground and Pickets

The old playground will most likely be disassembled this winter.  We will reuse parts as much as possible and an Eagle Scout candidate is working to rehab several amenities.  We will also make the old pickets available to families who purchased them back in 1992.  We will continue to post updates and schedules on the town website, in the Spotlight, and through social media.
