Northcliff Neighborhood Park Opens for Public Use on Saturday

Northcliff Neighborhood Park officially opens for public use this Saturday, March 16.

Shelton’s newest park results from a years-long collaboration between Northcliff neighborhood residents, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee, and Parks and Recreation staff.

Northcliff Neighborhood Park is a 1.75-acre neighborhood park designed to primarily serve the areas of Terrace Heights, Barnhard Street, Jones Street, and Northcliff Road. City staff previously identified this area as underserved for outdoor parks and recreation space.

“We hope everyone enjoys our new Northcliff Neighborhood Park,” said Parks and Recreation Supervisor Jordanne Krumpols. “We want to thank all of the volunteers, donors, residents, and community groups for their tireless efforts and support of this project.”

In December, 34 volunteers braved inclement weather to help install the park’s new playground. Volunteers worked for six hours, under the supervision of Parks and Recreation professional staff. The playground features a slide, climbing features, and a spinami. Volunteers worked for a total of 145 hours on the installation project.
