Flood damaged park to be rebuilt this fall

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 parks landscape, and it has been closed since.
