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.

The Cenotaph has been moved to its new and prominent position in Lockwood Memorial Field and Park

In 2016, Westport Village Council determined that its 2017 Sesquicentennial project would be moving the cenotaph from the fire hall parking lot to a prime location in Lockwood Memorial Field and Park.  Today, under the supervision of Josh Doornekamp, the move was completed.  Although there is still lots to do to get the area ready for November 11, you can already see why we felt it was important to move the cenotaph to this new location.

The park is also about to get the first phase of its playground.  Mr Paul Snider, our CAO, and a group of amazing volunteers will be building the playground on Saturday.  Wow!

Take a moment to come to the park.  Walk a few laps on the track, sit on one of the benches and visit with friends and family and take a moment to enjoy this jewel in the middle of the village.cenotaph Sep 27
