Keeseville park to get facelift with Saturday renovation activity

KEESEVILLE-As nature renews itself in the spring, residents of Keeseville will have the chance to help renew J.C. Park.

The site of the village of Keeseville athletic fields will also be the site of a cleanup and renovation project that will take place this Saturday, May 21, starting at around 9 a.m.

The event will help renovate the fields and park area, according to Keeseville mayor Meegan Rock.

"The event will be with the youth commission and we have plenty of paint and about 38 tons of red clay that will be coming," Rock said.

The clay will be used to restore the infield to one of the baseball/softball fields at the park, while the paint will be used to freshen up the look of the pavilion area.

"This is a project that involves the village of Keeseville and the towns of Chesterfield and Au Sable," Rock said. "Chesterfield is putting in a new parking area for the park complex and Au Sable is excavating the area for a new concrete slab that will be part of the skate park. We are all working together to help renovate the park for the community."

Rock said that the current skate park, located in the pavilion area, will be expanded with a 25-feet-by-50-feet concrete area.

"The old pavilion where they had the field days was what we turned into the skate park," Rock said. "There is about 50 feet that is covered by the pavilion and we are now adding to that."

The park is located on Kent Street, and Rock said that work will start around 9 a.m.
