FUNTOWN/SPLASHTOWN TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE!! The combo tickets are $30 ($39 at the gate) and are good through the end of the 2018 season. These tickets also allow you to go through the gate quicker as opposed to waiting in line to buy them there. Also, PLEASE NOTE-the cost for children 38-48 inches tall is $30 (under 38" gets in free), so these tickets will get you in quicker but won't save you money on those children. Please contact me if you are interested in purchasing tickets. You can also buy them at the library. Thank you


Town Manager Phil Pitula and I have continued our efforts to improve Abbott Park. We are in the second year of a serious push to get our ball fields in playing shape for the middle school baseball and softball teams. The school district, Little League and the town are creating a cooperative plan to upgrade and maintain the fields. It is great to see these groups getting together to make this happen.

The town has replaced/repaired fencing around the basketball courts and ball fields. I cleaned out fallen trees and weeds from the recreation trails. We also plan to replace two bridges on one of the trails. We also increased the maintenance schedule for the fields and park in general. The playground will be overhauled late summer/fall. Once these items are finished we will need no major work done in the near future and will only have to maintain the area. The area looks far better and we hope the residents enjoy the new look.


The recreation department is always looking for volunteers to help coach, run programs, clean and maintain fields and facilities, and strengthen the recreation department. Whatever your skill, time available, or interest, we can use your help! Volunteering can be a half hour of help once year, teaching a one-time or ongoing class, or a regular commitment. It's up to you and we welcome any help you offer.
