Parks & Rec Update: Byram Pool, Binney Dredge, Grass at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park

At the May 31 Parks & Rec board meeting, director Joe Siciliano gave updates on projects maintenance of grass at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park after the previous weekend’s Greenwich Town Party.

“Considering the amount of people, and the amount of equipment moved on and off the field, it was left in pretty good shape,” he said, adding that just a week later the Grand Concours would be staged. “Moving cars on and off is a little more critical because they have more weight to them and they have to turn and they have to park them,” he said.

Siciliano said some spots will need to be aerated, top-dressed, re-seeded.

Organizations that rent the field pay an application fee  plus a of $350 use fee, and have requirements to carry insurance. The Town charges for  materials and billable hours for on-site staff on an overtime basis.
