Shandaken parks benefit from grant

A story in the Daily Freeman from 8 June 2017 Shandaken town parks to benefit from NY state grant

Town parks are getting $12,000 worth of upgrades this summer thanks to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
The money is part of a $28,450 Smart Growth grant the state gave Shandaken last year. Besides park improvements, the money is being spent on solar-powered lighting, landscaping for town signs and maps in parks that show the locations and amenities of other parks in the town.
The $12,000 will be spread across all of the parks in Shandaken, according to town Supervisor Rob Stanley: Smith Park in the hamlet of Pine Hill will get a moon rock climber; Big Indian Park will get six new picnic tables, a park bench and a mini-disc golf set; Parish Field in Phoenicia will get a chipmunk spring jumper; and Glenbrook Park is to get a new gym climber.
Stanley said the new picnic tables and benches will be made of steel with a plastic coating.
