Grand Re-Opening of Veteran’s Park in Milton Rescheduled

The Grand Re-Opening of Veteran’s Park scheduled for tonight, June 27, 2013 has been RESCHEDULED for July 15, 2013 at 5:30 p.m. in front of the newly installed playground equipment.

After approvals from the City’s Park and Recreation Commission and City Council were secured as part of strategically budgeted City park upgrades for 2013, the City’s Department of Public Works installed brand new playground equipment on the east end of Veteran’s Park and in early June replaced the pillars on the park’s pavilion. The additions complimented privately donated work done on the west end of Veteran’s park in the form of a beautiful Veteran’s monument installed as a part of a local Eagle Scout project coordinated by Wesley Helmeid from Troop 471.

Mayor Frazier commented on the grand re-opening stating, “The investments made in Veteran’s Park, both public and private, signify our City’s continued commitment and on-going efforts in improving Milton, keeping our City’s parks a safe and enjoyable place for children and families to enjoy forever. We will keep making investments and more importantly improvements into our City’s parks to keep them engaging, and fun places for kids and their families.”
