Millville Breaks Ground on New Park

Posted: Updated:

MILLVILLE-Del.- The town of Millville has broken ground on its first park today. The park located on Dukes Drive, will cost 2.5 million and has been in the works since 2015. 

 This former piece of land is being transformed into a state of the art facility. This project will include playgrounds, an exercise course, and a community center with free parking. Mayor Maneri says this new park is a win for both locals and visitors. 

"It will benefit the town of Millville, plus every surrounding town because kids now have somewhere to go. We will also have a walking path way out there, where anybody can walk across" explains Maneri. 

A house use to sit on this 5 acre piece of land, but then the town of Millville bought the property in 2015. With lots of development happening in the area, Mayor Maneri says this new open space is extra special. 

"I think it is important to keep green space and not just build on everywhere we see. It is also just a place for residents to gather and relax" announces Maneri. 

The Millville Town Park is celebrating their first park in the first state. 

The town says construction will begin soon, pending good weather. They plan on opening the park to the public sometime next year in the spring or summer of 2020.
