The park behind the new Watertown Police Station has reopened after a renovation and now features a gazebo, a multi-use court and a new tot lot.
The process to renovate the park, known as 552 Main Street Park, began in 2010, and construction started in March, said Recreation Director Peter Centola.
“It seems like a good balance of aesthetically pleasing yet a functional and fun place,” Centola said.
The park was built with the help of a $200,000 grant received by the Recreation Department.
Children can climb and slide on the new tot lot, and older children can enjoy the multi-purpose court that has basketball hoops and can also be used for activities.
The gazebo and other areas will provide places for people to relax.
Nature lovers can enjoy 21 new trees and the two rain gardens.
The park is also handicap accessible.
