NEW HARTFORD – The Town of New Hartford is making upgrades to three of its parks with the help of state funding secured by state Sen. Joseph Griffo.

Griffo announced Monday that he has secured $250,000 for New Hartford to make renovations and improvements to Sherrill Brook Park, the Washington Mills Athletic Park, and Chadwicks Park.

According to Griffo, the design phases have already been completed and construction is already underway. The work is expected to take at least one year, and it’s being done by the town’s Parks and Recreation and Highway departments.

“Our local parks play a major role in enhancing a community’s appeal to its residents, tourists and newcomers,” Griffo said in a news release. “As such, it is important that we ensure that these spaces are modernized, inviting and safe places for people and families to gather. I am pleased that this funding will be used to enhance, renovate and improve these parks.”

“This project will build and enhance our parks and other outdoor recreation activities for our community for years to come,” said Town of New Hartford Supervisor Paul Miscione. “Whether it's at the park or at school, investing in public lands is an investment in our communities. I would like to thank Senator Griffo for his efforts in securing this important funding.”
