Nature park now open

The Tomasso Nature Park is open for the season for the public to enjoy. This nature facility is open from dawn to dusk and is located off Granger Lane near the Plainville Highway Department and Dog Pound. Access is available through the pedestrian gate through November 15.

Established in 1989, The Tomasso Nature Park was given to the Town of Plainville by Tomasso Brothers. The park was established as a wetland mitigation area for the wetland lost in the reconstruction and expansion of the runway at Robertson Airport.

Weekly narrated tour information and individuals with special needs and group tours may be arranged by calling Art Marinio at (860)628-1386.

If you wish to volunteer to do maintenance and upkeep at the nature park, contact the Plainville Recreation Department at (860)747-6022.
