The Chairs and tables won’t be in until Spring but that didn’t stop the park’s first ‘sit-down’ visitors from enjoying Farmington’s newest destination!
Is it always 3 o’clock in town? Check back this week to find out (wk of 10/15)
Congratulations Floyd Kofahl on your purchase of the 100th paver! Floyd will be invited to personally install his brick on site!
The Farmington Town board, in a unanimous decision voted on July 10 to approve the electrical cost for the Gateway project. This town-funded meter will provide the power for the clock (soon to be lit) and some lighting around the park. This move on the town’s part will save operating expenses going forward and re-affirms the town’s commitment to this great project!
The Pergola is complete!
