City Begins Work on New Playground at Fallon Memorial Elementary School

The City announced that work has begun a new playground project at Fallon Memorial Elementary School. The project includes a new playground, new shade canopy, benches, and a rubberized and painted surface in and around the playground. The $126,224 project, being funded by federal Community Development Block Grants, is estimated to be completed by Green Acres Landscaping and Construction Co. Inc., in June.

“As we continue to invest in our infrastructure, roads, and schools, it’s important that we also create spaces for students to be active and for residents to get outside and enjoy their neighborhood,” said Mayor Grebien. “I look forward to opening the playground and the park with residents and those that have been advocates for these projects.”

“On behalf of the families of the Fallon School neighborhood and the Fallon staff, we are excited for the new playground and thank the City for supporting the importance of organized play and physical activity as an integral part of growth both at school and for recreational time,” said Superintendent Patricia DiCenso.

“The school community has rallied together to make the playground a reality for our students,” said Fallon PTA President Michael Cioe. “Thanks to the partnership with the City our students see more and more progress every day; they can’t wait until it’s finished.”

The City is also set to break ground on the site of a new passive park on Summit Street (south of Walcott Street and adjacent to Rt. 95) at the beginning of June. The project will include the installation of a new gazebo, concrete walkways, lighting, fencing, landscaping, lawn areas, new electric and water service, and an irrigation system. The $282,065 project, being funded by federal Community Development Block Grants, is estimated to be completed in September.
