Russell Park Playground Updated and Ready for Use

Russell Park Playground Updated

Russell Park Playground has had a make-over recently. In September 2013 the Village was the recipient of a $10,500 grant from Herkimer County HealthNet to install new equipment at the playground. The Village matched the funds by providing in-kind service to complete the replacement of the equipment which dated back to the mid 60's. Members of the Village's Parks and Recreation Commission were instrumental in the project from start to finish. Playground equipment includes Freddy the Fire Truck, Bernie Bus, Play Dozer, and Vaquero and Stationary buttons. The project is funded by the NYS Department of Health, Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work, and Play grant administered by the Herkimer County HealthNet. Because of delays caused by the flooding in 2013, full completion of the project was achieved this summer.The picture on the left shows members of the Parks & Recreation Commission (PRC), Herkimer County HealthNet (HCH) and members of the Village's Board (VB) as follows: Front: Kari Slaughter (PRC), Mayor Terry Leonard, Allison Swartz (HCH) Fred Hartmann (VB) Back: Les Stephens (PRC), Joanne Moore (VB)

David Whalen Community Park Many volunteers came together to refurbish the park in 2007 in the memory of David Whalen long time caretaker for the park. The Village Board by resolution named the former Community Park in his memory. It is currently used for various activities, including leagues, school use and recreational program use. A caretaker is hired throughout the late spring and summer months to maintain the fields. A special reservation form is available for use of the fields.
