Thank you for coming to enjoy Schuyler Park!  A few general reminders to keep it beautiful.

1. Please help to keep our park clean, safe, and in good shape by picking up any trash or empty water bottles and placing them in the trash or recycling bins located throughout the park.

2. New safety nets were just installed along the playground to protect our young athletes.  Please no clmbing on the nets, they are not designed to support the weight of a child but to protect them from any stray balls.

3. Absolutely NO dogs permitted in the park.  Do not take this personal, we all love our dogs, but you know why we can't let them on the fields, please respect that.

4. Absolutely NO vehicles are permitted on the fields at any time.  This may result in damage to turf and the creation of an unsafe playing surface and possible damage to the inground irrigation system.

Officials from the Towns of Saratoga and Northumberland and volunteers on the Schuyler Park Committee are excited to share updated information on the creation of our new recreational park.
"The first phase of the park is right on schedule," comments Laurie Griffen, co-chair of the Schuyler Park Committee and member of the Town of Saratoga Planning Board. "After focusing on quite a bit of 'behind-the-scenes' work, we've started moving dirt and preparing the site."Volunteers offer donations of funds, goods and services "Many business people and individuals have volunteered time, services and funding for this intermunicipal project," Griffen says. "We're thrilled with the enthusiasm we're seeing and, of course, we welcome any help that our community wants to provide."

Business representatives and community members also asked that the Schuyler Park Committee establish a separate non-profit organization focused on fundraising. To this end, the Friends of Schuyler Park was formed. The 501c3 status of this organization means it can receive funds for the construction and maintenance of the park, while allowing businesses and other donors to receive tax breaks for their donations.

"This allows for another type of fundraising––one that's removed from taxpayers and municipalities. This group is separate from the Schuyler Park Committee, but is working in tandem with committee members for the benefit of the park," Griffen explained. "Any monetary donations to the Friends of Schuyler Park will be used to construct and maintain the park, along with the park and recreation funds set aside by both towns and the school district."
