Playground work nearly finished

Town Administrator Kevin Sweet said that a climbing structure — the final piece of a $650,000 joint renovation effort for town recreation areas — should be installed in Reo Park by the end of this year. The Coolidge and Reo parks reopened in September after months of site work. Improvements include a new swing set at Reo, improvements to a T-ball field at Coolidge, and the installation of half-length basketball courts at both parks.
