As New Milford officials continue to look at ways to improve Park Security for the health of our residents, animals, and the environment some new protocols have been put in place. Mayor Pete Bass is highlighting changes at Carlson's Grove and Clatter Valley aimed at keeping the parks safe and maintainable for use. Any New Milford resident can show a driver's license or other photo proof of residency and will be admitted at no charge. Any other person wanting to use the parks is asked to go to the Parks and Rec office at Pettibone Community Center and purchase a permit sticker. That's also the requirement at Lynn Deming and Addis Park. New Milford Police and the Park Ranger will continue to monitor the Parks and enforce the rules. There is no alcohol nor loud music allowed in the Parks.
