A Letter from the Director of Parks & Recreation Parents, Staff and Visitors of Greenwood Center and Greenwood Park: Many of you are aware that a new Council on Aging was approved at Greenwood Park. Construction is slated to begin in late spring/early summer. At the time of this letter we are not sure of the exact start date. We will keep you informed and appreciate your patience. Also, when we have the final map of the construction plan we will make that available to you. You are probably wondering about how our operations of the daycare, extended day and summer camps will occur during this year and a half process. I am happy to report that we are working closely with the project manager, architect and Town Leaders to endure the proper safety measures are taken to keep our children, staff and visitors safe during this process. We have identified suitable walkways from the building to the pool as well as parking areas, drop off areas and pick up spots. Appropriate measures are being taken to ensure that all outside play is safe and enjoyable for everyone. We will be working hard over the next few months to finalize our plans and timelines. Parents and staff will be updated appropriately to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible for everyone. We do expect there to be some bumps along the way and appreciate your patience. This situation will surely bring challenges but with proper planning and good communication we plan to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all. Sincerely, Bari Jarvis, Director Longmeadow Parks and Recreation
