What happened to the Bushes at Page Park?

Page Park Bristol, CT.

If you drive by Page Park on King Street you will notice the decades old row of bushes have been chopped off.

Superintendent of Parks and Recreation Dr. Joshua Medeiros stated, “The bushes were cut down for several reasons, the first is so you can see the gorgeous view that is page park from the road when you drive by. The bushes were blocking the view.”

“Additionally, it serves a safety purpose in that you can visually see the entire park now which deters people from engaging in any bad behavior,” he said.

Beside the bushes, Medeiros has big plans for the Park.

First is to completely renovate the pool.

Medeiros told the Bristol Press “We will be doing a complete renovation to make the pool ADA compliant,” he said. “We’ll also be gutting the inside, putting in a new lobby space and new locker rooms. It will also have new features including zero depth entry points, and water spray machines.”

Additionally, Medeiros wants to repair, resurface and repaint the lower basketball courts.

The Park Pavilion is also on his eye. The goal is to renovate the iconic structure next to the pond with plans to rent it out to the public.

The Big Green Monster — maintenance building — will get some needed attention as well.

According to the Press he hopes to discuss setting up public meetings, surveys and focus groups.

Medeiros hopes that this process will start this fall.

Page Park was given by DeWitt and May Rockwell Page in 1933.

The Park is spread out, so bring good walking shoes. Young kids 0-12 will enjoy the playground area which includes sprinklers to cool off. It also has swings for disabled children and a playscape for children using a walker.

Park entrances can be found off King Street, Moody Street, Page Avenue, and Woodland Street.

Park Amenities include:

Boundless playground
Splash pad (open seasonally from 11am-6pm)
Disc golf course
Page Park lagoon
Five lighted tennis courts
Hardball diamond
Lighted softball field
Lodge building (Ski Lodge- Not available for rentals)
Page Park Pavilion (Not available for rentals)
