The Peter Igo Park Initiative, which largely consists of members of the Marshfield Tennis Club, has secured the Community Preservation Committee’s approval for $240,000 for the first phase of renovations at the run-down park, but still needs an affirmative vote at Town Meeting on April 22. “It’s been 40 years since anything’s really been done down there,” said CPC chairman Tom Whalen. Russell Ellis, a member of the boards of the Igo Park group and tennis club, said the initial funding will cover engineering, site preparation, detailed drawings, and possibly work on the courts. Next year, the group will seek a similar amount of money to finish the project. Plans call for three regulation tennis courts, a basketball court, special tennis courts for children, a skating rink, and more. The project has also received two grants totaling about $60,000 from the United States Tennis Association, he said.
