NA Applies For Funds To Overhaul Brayton Park
iBerkshires.com reports with new playgrounds in at Kemp Park and Windsor Lake, and the next phase of work set for Noel Field, the city is now looking to improve Braytonville Park.
Director of Community Development Larysa Bernstein this week said the city has applied for a Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities grant to overhaul the park and athletic field below Brayton Elementary School and, hopefully, add a tennis court and multi-use track wide enough to accommodate both bikers and walkers.
Most recently the city has utilized PARC grants to build the skate park at Noel Field and PARC funds will also be used toward installing the splash park and other amenities at the downtown complex.
Both grants came in at $400,000. The project also includes a parking lot for the field, also commonly referred to has Brayton Park or Brayton Hill Park.
Currently, there is no parking and cars often line up along the road that leads to the Northern Berkshire Family YMCA and Brayton Hill Apartments.
