    Dogs at Town Park 

There have been many concerns about dogs running free at the Town Park and Veteran's Field. Please remember that all dogs must be on a leash and under the control of the owner at all times and any mess that the dog makes is the owner's responsibility to pick up. Allowing your dog to run free on any town property is unacceptable and could constitute a danger to others who are trying to use our facilities. Please keep this in mind and enjoy your walk with your dog.


Kayak signup will be on April 15 at the Park and Rec office. The cost is $40 per slip.


Garden plots will be distributed for all of last year's gardeners starting on April 22. Any remaining plots will be given out on a first come first serve basis starting on May 13. The cost is just $5 per plot.
