Wolcott Park Renovation Update: Improvements to Wolcott Park are underway. Post-tension concrete basketball, tennis and pickleball courts have been completed. Next is an upgrade to the park's electrical infrastructure and parking. Funding has been secured from Town capital funds as well as a generous grant from the State Department of Economics and Environmental Protection. We are grateful to Peter Miniutti, professor from UConn, and his students for helping develop the Wolcott Park Plan.
