PLYMOUTH – A popular park pavilion destroyed by flooding in 2006 should be re-built by the end of October, a Plymouth town official said last week.
The pavilion at Foster Park, located on state Rte. 23 just west of the Norwich town line, was washed away last June when high waters breached the bank of the nearby Canasawacta Creek. The flood also damaged much of the park’s landscape, and it has been closed since.
In August, the Town of Plymouth accepted a bid from Wilcox Construction of North Norwich to re-build the structure this fall at a cost of $42,670. The Federal Emergency Management Agency will be covering the majority of the expense, Town Councilman Richard Thompson said.
