A community celebration is being held this afternoon to mark the Grand Reopening of Brookfield Town Park Beach and Cadigan Park. The sand area at the Town park is now three times larger. A building housing changing rooms, restrooms and water for an outdoor shower opened earlier this summer. First Selectman Bill Tinsley says celebration events included face painting, a balloon sculptor and games among other features.
Members of the Cadigan family will be on hand for the ribbon cutting at 3pm.
Event overflow parking and shuttle bus transport will be available from Huckleberry Hill Elementary School beginning at 12:45 pm.
