Tricentennial Park Reaches Phase 2 [VIDEO]
New sign put in Friday.
Work has begun on the new Tricentennial Park, a project by the Land Preservation Society and Tricentennial Committee.
“A lot of volunteers have pitched in and helped a lot,” said Kathy Zawasky, co-president of the Norton Land Preservation Society.
As a project, the Eagle Scouts helped to dig out a path and will lay out blue stone. Other volunteers have done some weeding and rototilled. The design of the park is by Dana Rappaneau of Olde Thyme Shoppe.
“He’s like an artist at work,” Zawasky said.
Jay Maloney and Joel Vieira of Signs By Tomorrow stopped by the park Friday to install a new sign for the park, which cost $1,000 and was donated by Mansfield Bank.
Norton townie Butch Rich was instrumental in this donation.
“Butch Rich has been amazing,” Zawasky said. “He knows how to approach people. He is a liaison with the town and businesses.”
In addition to the park, which is slated to open this fall, the site is also in front of the Community Playground and adjacent to historical Campbell house. Kathy said she hopes that the attention to the park will also grow to include the house. She said that she could envision an art exhibit being displayed inside as an extension of the Norton Historical Society.
“It’s really great,” said Kathy’s husband, Phil Zawasky, of the sign. “Finally we have a combination of all the activities in one space on this sign.”
