Happy Spring/Summer! The warm weather is finally here. The Sandwich Park District is excited to spend another great spring and summer with you. Over the winter we enjoyed many great programs and events with our participants. Our 2021/2022 basketball programs were a big hit with lots of participants that got to finally enjoy some much-needed basketball. Over the winter our Ice Rink was extremely popular. With the weather being very favorable, we were able to keep the rink open for the longest string of days in its history of existence here at the Sandwich Park District. We were ecstatic to see so many patrons using the rink over the winter. New this year we have survey available on our website for the ice rink. If you have time please consider filling it out to help us better plan for the future of the rink.
With the Snow gone, it’s time for the sunshine and flowers! This summer we have quite the program lineup for you. Flip through this guide and find a few programs you are interested in and join us for a fun time this summer. We are very excited to again host our ever-popular Movies in the Park. These movies are a huge hit every summer. Inside this guide you will find the lineup of movies we plan to show. Also, this summer we will be lighting up the skies on July 2 nd to celebrate our country’s independence with our annual Freedom Day’s Fireworks. Join us for a fun time out at the beautiful Sandwich Fairgrounds where we will have live entertainment, food, and games. Bring your friends and love ones and help us celebrate our freedom and those who served to give us that freedom.
I am happy to announce that our new parking lot and lights have been installed at Milestone Park! This project has been a long time coming and has greatly improved the look and functionality of this park. We have also made many ADA upgrades to our parks this past year. We have installed access points to our playground equipment at Milestone, Ernest Memorial, and Patriots Park. This allows patrons of all abilities to access these playgrounds. We have also added a new ADA access path at Milestone Park so patrons have a nice path that gains them access to Softball Fields 3 and 4. It is the Sandwich Park District’s focus to continue to complete ADA improvements to your parks and to continue to identify areas of improvement to allow everyone to enjoy their neighborhood parks.
We are excited to see you out enjoying YOUR parks this summer! I challenge all of you this summer to visit a park in Sandwich that you might not have visited before. For a list of all the parks in Sandwich, view page 8 in this guide and don’t forget to get out and play!
