Park & Recreation Committee Representative:
Pat Schlater ~
The roller hockey rink is a kid magnet – young and old. There is also a basketball court and a tennis backboard to practice your swing.  The park is on Worrell Elementary School property so parents will find a baseball diamond, swings and other modern playground equipment for the younger children closer to the school. A small woodlot, with a shortcut trail to the school, separates the playground from the park.
