Narrowsburg News


About 25 residents braved the thunderstormy weather and attended a meeting on Wednesday, February 24 to discuss enhancements to the Tusten Town Park, located on the Flats. The project to develop a concept for a multi-generational park is being funded by a grant from the Upper Delaware Council, Sullivan Renaissance and the town. The working concepts developed by the multi-generational park committee (MGPC) appointed by Carol Wingert, town supervisor, were presented by Buck Moorhead, architect. Present concepts include an approximately one-quarter-mile walking trail with exercise stops, a mound for children to climb, a horseshoe pit, pavilion, splash pad and additional playground equipment. Attendees had an opportunity to express their input, support new ideas—and in some instances negative feelings—about the working plan. The MGPC will resume meeting, sensitive to the comments expressed at this meeting, and develop a final concept to enhance the park, making it beneficial for all generations from toddlers to senior citizens. The final conceptual plan, anticipated to be completed in April, will be available for review and presented for public comment.

Next: Have you ever wondered if you would enjoy a yoga class, a dance class? The Narrowsburg Union continues to be the venue for community events: this time free yoga and dance classes.

If yoga or dance is not for you, perhaps music is your interest.
