  • Groton Skate Park Improvements: The Skate park was born out of a community effort and improvements to the park over the years have been funded entirely through donations. Your donation helps keep the park in good shape and for additional elements to be added for the community to enjoy. 
  • Bicycle Pump Track: Lead by Bike Groton, the Groton Pump Track project was approved by the Groton Town Council in March 2021 with a proposed location at the Poquonnock Boardwalk Park. Donations will help bring this exciting, new recreation activity to Groton. 
  • Tercentennial Playground Inclusion: In 2005, Groton built the Tercentennial Playground, located in Poquonnock Plains Park. At the time, a lot of thought was put into how we could make the playground inclusive for families, generations, abilities, and the community. In the years since, thousands of children and their families have enjoyed the playground together and it has become an important gathering spot for many in Groton and beyond! A lot has changed in the last 17 years and we are looking at how we can improve the playground to be even more inclusive! We need citizens with ideas and motivation to step forward and lead us in the effort to ensure that Groton remains a leader in inclusion.
