Watertown Recreation Director Peter Centola announced that part of Filippello Park will be closed for another week for construction.
Centola sent out the following announcement:
The Filippello (Arlington) section of Filippello Park closure has been extended and will not be open to the public and all users until Friday, August 7 at 6:00pm due to the installation of pole foundations for the new lighting system.
This includes the field, walking track, tot lot / playground and table and grill areas within the Filippello (Arlington) section of the park.
This does not include the Filippello (Grove) entryway, dog park, courts, parking lot, Filippello (Grove) field, tot lot, table and grill area, bathroom and spray park.
The Park Adventure Program offered by the Recreation Department will be moved to Arsenal Park and the Raiders FC clinic will move to the Victory (Oval) for the week.
I am sorry for the issue, but we need to close in order to protect the wellbeing of our residents and to allow the contractor to perform the duties effectively and safely.
Thanking you in advance for your expected cooperation with this request.
