    TOWN BREAKS GROUND ON HALF MILLION DOLLAR PROJECT  
    POSTED FEB 25, 2021
    Following a 24-month development process, the Town of Glocester broke ground this week, February 23, on its $620,000 renovation of Glocester Memorial Park (GMP). Primarily funded by a $400,000 matching grant from the Rhode Island Department of Environment Management (DEM), Glocester Memorial Park is set to see its first major renovation since its initial development in 1997.

    DEM's 2020 Outdoor Recreation Grant was available to all local municipalities to acquire, develop or renovate outdoor recreational areas. Applications were submitted December 2019 and 21 communities, including Glocester, were awarded funds, April 2020.

    Glocester’s application featured improvements to the park that appeal to various age groups. Key upgrades and developments include the relocation and installation of a new playground for ages ranging from preschool to adolescence, as well as the construction of an all-ages fitness obstacle course.

    On the opposite end of the age spectrum, a new bocce ball area will be created near the senior center. This oasis for the elderly will feature a bocce ball court, benches, picnic tables and several sail shades.

    The basketball courts will also see an upgrade. In addition to a new playing surface, the current four-hoop configuration will increase to a six-basket layout. The improved basketball playing area will remain located next to the recently renovated tennis and pickleball courts.   

    Additional details about the scope of the Glocester Memorial Park project and other information about DEM's Outdoor Recreation Grant are available at:
    www.dem.ri.gov/programs/planning/grants/

    Stay tuned for additional information and updates as they become available.

    ATTENTION: ALL GLOCESTER RESIDENTS     
    POSTED MAY 5, 2017
    Due to the growing amount of trash and litter on our town roads and in our ponds and streams, all trash being hauled in open truck beds or trailers must be secured (R.I.G.L. 31-25-10). Many of our residents have voiced a concern to the Town Council regarding the trash/litter problem in Glocester. The Council believes that asking residents to secure their trash when hauling to the transfer station will help eliminate the amount of trash on the roads and in our ponds.

    Please do your part to KEEP GLOCESTER CLEAN AND GREEN. Help us clean up our roadways and ponds by doing your part and be sure your trash is secure.

    Thank you to all residents who actively pick up litter on our roads and properties. Let’s all work together and continue to KEEP GLOCESTER CLEAN AND GREEN.

    The Glocester Town Council
