New Windsor in line for a town park

January 22, 1996

New Windsor soon might have a town park at Routes 31 and 75.

The town recently signed a deal with the state for the 1/2 -acre parcel. The state Board of Public Works, which must approve the transfer, probably will review the proposal at its meeting later this month.

The town must pay the $800 transfer cost and agree to maintain the property, keep it in public use and erect no permanent structures.

"We will be able to have a gazebo or fountain on the site, however," said Mayor Jack A. Gullo Jr.

The town hopes to place a century-old public fountain in the park. The fountain, which for years stood at Main and High streets, has been in storage for about three years, while officials searched for a permanent home.
