The city of North Adams has awarded the splash park project design bid to Berkshire Design Group Inc. and construction could begin this summer.

IBerkshires.com reports that Director of Community Development Larysa Bernstein yesterday updated the Parks and Recreation Commission about the new project at Noel Field Athletic Complex.

She says they are working on the design now and the plan is to start construction in the late summer and finish by June 30 of 2019.

The city received $400,000 through a Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities grant.

The project in totality is slated to cost $723,000, of which the city plans to fund the balance with Community Development Block Grants.
