What do you think of a new playground?

We want your feedback!

During the development of the town’s recently adopted Open Space and Recreation Plan, Shelburne residents requested more playground space. As a result, the Shelburne Recreation Committee has discussed the possibility of locating a playground in your neighborhood. The playground would be designed for toddlers to 12-year-olds. It would also give toddlers and home-schooled children access to a playground during the school day, given that the school playground is for use by the public only when school is not in session. The majority of the playground costs would be paid for using grants and donations.

Originally, the Committee discussed placing the playground within the enclosed semi-circular hedges between the Arms Academy building and Severance Street. But based on early feedback, we’ve moved the proposed location farther south – to the area between Arms Academy and Trinity Church. The playground would be placed far enough from the street for safety and far enough from the softball field so as not to interfere with games or practices. With all the parking available in the Arms Academy and Cowell Gym lots, we think this would be a great location.

What do you think? We would love your feedback and encourage you to call or email us using any of the options below, or come to our next Recreation Committee meeting at the Cowell Gym on Monday, January 16th. We will be discussing the playground at 7 pm, and you’re welcome to join us and to talk to us in person!

Did you know?

Shelburne was first settled in 1756 as part of Deerfield, Massachusetts known then as the "Deerfield Northwest."  It was initially organized as the district of Shelburne in 1768 (named in honor of William Petty, 2nd Earl of Shelburne) and was officially incorporated as a town in 1775.

Therefore, Shelburne will be celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2018!
