Repairs could be coming to pavilion at Dickinson Park in Newtown

Repairs could be coming to the pavilion at Dickinson Park in Newtown.  Members of the Parks and Recreation Commission and Board of Selectmen recently toured the facility.  The pavilion can be rented for various events such as camps, weddings and the like.  It made nearly $10,000 for the town last year.  A 2012 master plan included a new pavilion, an uncovered deck expansion and splash pad.  The plan also calls for more handicapped parking.  All of the work is estimated to cost 400-thousand dollars.  Some of the work at the pavilion itself would be re-decking, re-shingling and leveling the floor.  The Parks and Rec Commission will present the needs and wants to the Selectmen during discussions this winter on projects in the Capital Improvement Plan.
