Final job finished for Lockwood Park for 2018

Lots of great improvements were made to Lockwood this year, including the new stage and the basketball court.  The court took three kicks to get it right!  After the court was finished to our specs, a keen basketball player suggested adding another 7′ to its length creating a full half court.  We agreed and he volunteered to do the concrete pad.  Amazing.  This past week the final work was completed when the fence was built.  Thank you Josh Doornekamp, Frank Huth, Joel Kimmel and the rest of the 2014-2018 Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and Public Works Supervisor Peter Evans.

Remember, no tax dollars have been used for the improvements to the park.  Lockwood Foundation gave a generous grant 4 years ago that required matching dollars to be fund raised by the Village.  And the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee and others did it!   Fantastic Team!  Thank you.

Sounds of spring this week in Westport? Construction!!!!

Another week of hammering, sawing and heavy machinery chugging in the ‘Port.  It sounds amazing, doesn’t it?  Home owners are fixing roofs, adding additions, and finishing projects.  Fetch Murphy Way was paved so no more wash outs in the next heavy rain. The foundation of the new basketball court was constructed and is waiting for the concrete.  The framing of the covered stage is also underway in the park.  (Remember – neither the basketball court nor covered stage is funded through tax dollars, rather by fund raising and grants.)

What an exhilarating feeling in the Village!

Official opening of the stage will take place on July 1.  More details to follow.
