Learn About Plans to Renovate Watertown's Casey Park

The following information was provided by the Watertown Recreation Department:

Some big changes could be coming to Casey Park, and residents can find out more at a community meeting on Jan. 8.

The large park on Watertown Street south of the river includes a little league baseball field, basketball courts, tennis courts and a children's play structure. Recently, Recreation Director Peter Centola presented potential upgrades to the Town Council, including: building an outdoor ice/street hockey rink, repairs to the tennis courts and upgrades to the baseball field.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 8, in the Lower Hearing Room in Town Hall. Along with Centola, project manager Glenn Howard of CDM Smith, will present the final designs for the project. 

They will field residents' comments, concerns and questions.
