Area Grants Mean Work On Parks And Recreation

Springfield, Easthampton and Holyoke share in several state grants in an announcement by Governor Charlie Baker on Wednesday.   Six-and-a-half-million dollars in grant funding for  statewide parks and recreation improvements. 

 Easthampton is getting  four-hundred-thousand dollars from a Parkland Acquisitions and  Renovations for Communities grant to purchase about a dozen acres next  to Mount Tom.  

Baker's office says the acquisition will enable the park  to serve as the trailhead for the New England Scenic Trail.  

Springfield  and Holyoke also received grants of the same amount for work on Emily  Bill Park and a restoration effort for Pouliot Pool, respectively.
