    Dogs at Town Park 

There have been many concerns about dogs running free at the Town Park and Veteran's Field. Please remember that all dogs must be on a leash and under the control of the owner at all times and any mess that the dog makes is the owner's responsibility to pick up. Allowing your dog to run free on any town property is unacceptable and could constitute a danger to others who are trying to use our facilities. Please keep this in mind and enjoy your walk with your dog.

After School Program
 The program runs each day from 3 - 6 for all school aged children. The cost is just $25 per day with discounts for multiple children. Watch for our special activity days.  Call for more details.
