The Parks Division of the Department of Public Works (DPW) is based primarily in the big white barn next to the high school field. The division provides grounds-keeping for a variety of Town properties which include Town Hall, Town Commons, Beachgrounds Park, and Canal Park among many others.
Buttery Brook Park
This division also manages Buttery Brook Park, where many great activities are held throughout the summer season. The Friends of Buttery Brook do an outstanding job of organizing popular events such as the Children's Theater, Cruise Nights, and Big Rig Day. The park also has a picnic pavilion and picnic tables for rent for some summer fun.
