Master Plan

In February 2023 the Recreation Department received a grant from the State of Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to initiate a comprehensive master plan for Robert Tedford Memorial Park and Sandy Beach at Crystal Lake.  Following the necessary town approvals, the Master Plan process commenced in November of 2023.  This strategic initiative is fundamental for holistic park development, ensuring efficient resource allocation to address community needs, while providing an enduring vision and framework for park enhancements, maintenance, and decision-making.  for inquires or to participate in the planning process, please contact us at recreationstaff@ellington-ct.gov or refer to the information provided below for project updates.
