Brookfield parks revitalization about to get underway

Cadigan Park and town beach in Brookfield are about to get a major overhaul.

The community last year agreed to a $5 million bond to upgrade these facilities that date back to the mid 1960s. Bids for the park portion, including an artificial field system, were last week awarded to Land Tech of Amityville, N.Y. Work is expected to begin in the next couple weeks with the park then closed for the summer. The hope is the fields will be ready for football in mid to late-August.

The town beach will remain open in the summer, but come September the second phase of the process will be awarded so that portion of the project, which includes construction of a new beach house, relandscaped picnic area and rebuilt sea wall, will then begin.
