In 2004, the town board applied for a $5000.00 grant for the Garfield Town Park. The grant was approved with the Town of Garfield matching the funds in dollars or in kind (meaning volunteer work, etc.). The money was to be spent toward a new parking area. A lot has happened since then to necessitate the forming of a committee. Not only will we receive the grant monies, but we are also going to receive $350.00 per lot on all sub-divisions. This sub-division money can only be spent on our parks. Approximately 20 – 30 thousand dollars will be received in the next 12 – 16 months. We are very excited about restoring the park back to its original condition or better to serve the people of the area.
The Park Committee meets as needed and meeting notices will be posted here.
