Today, Senator Bob Duff, Senate Majority Leader announced the State Bond Commission's approval of a $4.5 million state investment in Norwalk's public parks.
Norwalk Mayor Rilling said, “This funding reflects Governor Lamont and Senator Duff’s continued commitment to securing critical funding for the City of Norwalk’s Park System and prioritizes some of Norwalk’s treasures, such as our parks and green spaces. These funds will upgrade several of our sports fields, including the Broad River Synthetic Field baseball complex, and help beautify our landscapes by improving park amenities at Irving Freese Park. The funds will also replace playground equipment at Brookside Elementary School, Ludlow Park, and Veterans Park to increase safety and accessibility and enhance the city's beautification and sustainability initiatives by enhancing our recycling and garbage efforts at our parks."
