Krashes Fields Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
On June 19 at 9 a.m. the Princeton community will celebrate the improvements to the Krashes Fields and Recreation Area made possible by a $25,000 grant from the MassDot Shared Streets and Spaces program. A new ADA walking track, seasonal ice rink, kiosks connecting Krashes Fields to a network
of Princeton trails and Princeton Land Trust areas, and new picnic tables, benches, and trash cans have all been installed. Truly a group effort, the grant was implemented through the Parks and Recreation Committee with the help of the Highway Department, Open Space Committee, and Princeton Land Trust. The celebration on the 19th will be attended by State representatives along with town and committee representatives and the families of Princeton. This marks a new season for the much-loved Krashes Fields, opening up greater opportunities to citizens of all ages to enjoy this wonderful town treasure.
