BOSTON — On Thursday, the State Senate voted to approve a budget amendment proposed by Senator Eric P. Lesser that provides $75,000 in state funding for the construction of a new splash park in Belchertown.
The new splash park will be built in place of several tennis courts located near Chestnut Hill School which have fallen into disrepair. The park will redevelop land that is currently underutilized and unsafe for small children.
“There’s a lot going on in Belchertown!” Sen. Lesser said. “This new splash park creates yet another recreational opportunity for families to enjoy. I’m thrilled to support the Town in their efforts to boost property values and improve the quality of life for all residents with a safe new place for children to play.”
The funding will need to be agreed upon by the House before heading to the Governor for his signature.
