A grand opening and “first flag flying” ceremony is planned for April 6, the first day the Edwin A. Keach Park on Chestnut Street will be open to the public. Organizers have planned a day of games, activities, and entertainment for kids and adults, including a ribbon-cutting around noon. Easton’s Open Space and Recreation Plan identified a need for additional recreational fields three years ago due to the increasing number of children enrolling in sports programs. The 16-plus-acre land purchase at the May 2011 Annual Town Meeting includes three multiuse recreational fields, two baseball/softball diamonds, and a playground for children. Edwin A. Keach was a 21-year-old Easton resident visiting home from college in 2003 when he was killed in a car accident across the street from the new park.
