The Greenfield Recreation Department has secured a grant of nearly $16,300 from the Cambridge-based Stanton Foundation for upgrades to the city’s only dog park, the Paws Park at Green River Park. The Capital Improvement Grant will be used to install two additional benches, construct a small storage shed, add a dog agility feature and spread additional pea stone.
“I’m thrilled to see the community still supporting the care and upkeep of the Paws Park; I applaud the volunteers who were the catalysts for this funding,” said Recreation Director Christy Moore. “I also want to thank the Stanton Foundation for coming through for the Paws Park once again. An earlier Stanton grant helped to construct the park.”
Upgrades to the park are underway and on track to be completed in the springtime. The Paws Park opened in the fall of 2016.
