t Thursday, October 17, 2013 N/Warren Town and County News Page Five Parks and Rec Capital Improvement Projects Norwalk Parks and Rec has recently completed two capital improvement projects in our city. The first was repainting the basketball courts at City Park. It now has a purple overlay with white lines. This new paint was a much needed project since it hadn't been painted for approximately 15 years. The second project was the renovation of the adult ball fields at the Sports Complex. New infield was added along with irrigation. This will complete all fields at the complex with new infields so that the complex is ready for spring tournaments. Stop by and see the new updated facilities. Photos submitted.
