Glastonbury Delegation Members Welcome Funding for Addison Park

A state grant of $325,000 to improve Glastonbury’s Addison Park was celebrated Friday by members of the town’s legislative delegation — Senator MD Rahman, D-Manchester, Rep. Jill Barry, D-Glastonbury, and Rep. Jason Doucette, D-Manchester  — after the funding was approved by the State Bond Commission.

The money will help Glastonbury renovate its pool by replacing the plaster and tiles on its surfaces as well as making improvements to critical components like its water filtration system. The funds will also help the town refurbish Addison Park’s basketball and tennis courts.

“Addison Park is a vital hub of community activity in Glastonbury, with a wide range of facilities ranging from pools and tennis courts to its new splash pad,” Senator Rahman said. “The planned upgrades, supported by this state grant, will enhance the park’s facilities, making it a safer and more enjoyable place for families to spend their leisure time. I am thankful to Governor Lamont and the Bond Commission for their commitment to this project, ensuring that Addison Park remains a cherished asset for our community.”

“Addison Park is already an absolute gem in our community and this funding will help to keep it shining. I am grateful to Governor Lamont and the State Bond Commission for their support,” Representative Doucette said.

“I am thrilled to see this funding allocation for Addison Park,” Representative Barry said. “This investment will help enhance some of the recreational areas in the park which provide a vibrant, inclusive space for everyone to enjoy, play and connect.”
