Tiny Tots Soccer
A brand new soccer program for children ages 2 - 4 at Colonial Park Saturday mornings from September 24 through November 12 from 9:00 - 10:00. Cost is just $10. Parents must remain with the child. Emphasis will be on fun, being around the ball, field and other children under the tutelage of Stephen Frattini. Sign up on the first day. Any shoes are OK but please get shin guards.

    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.

Fall Soccer

We are starting a brand new fall soccer program on September 10 at Colonial Park for all boys and girls in grades K - 2 from 9:00 - 10:00 and for grades 3 - 5 from 10:15 - 11:15 under the expert tutelage of T.J. Fazzone. The program will run for 8 weeks and costs just $50. Basic skills and drills and fun will be emphasized. You may sign up at the Park and Rec office or come on the first day.
