Capital Improvement Plan

Park infrastructure replacement and new construction are investments in the community. Many of the projects are based on needs identified in the 2020 Community Needs Survey and align with our Strategic Plan to “Plan, design, build and maintain new facilities that are accessible to individuals and community groups of all physical capabilities, skill levels, age groups, income levels, cultural groups and activity interests.”  Each Groton Park & Recreation CIP project is listed below based on what stage of the process it is in.
