Additions to Milford pavilion will include pergola, patio
According to recreation director Nicole Banks, several years ago students from the high school's building and trades program built a large pavilion for the town, providing a place to escape the sun, dance and picnic as well as host family gatherings by reservation. Keyes Park is the primary recreation space in Milford featuring the town pool, tennis courts, a skate park and large playground, along with playing fields.
Starting in September when students in the building and trades program return to school, construction will begin on the new pergola. Students will then transport the structure to Keyes Park and install it.
Banks said there are always ideas floating around for new projects including refurbishing the skate park, building a splash park or even installing a water slide for the pool, but right now, the focus is on completing the pergola project.
