Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today announced that $3.1 million to fund Sherwood Island State Park improvements is expected to be approved at the next meeting of the state Bond Commission.
The funding will allow for major renovations to the park’s main pavilion, among other upgrades, he said.
“Sherwood Island is Connecticut’s first state park and is visited by hundreds of thousands of park goers every year,” said Malloy in a statement.
“It is also home to the state’s 9/11 Memorial and therefore has a special place in the state park system. The main pavilion has not seen any major renovations in nearly 25 years and is showing its age.”
