Essex Park To Close For Improvements

Wellington’s Essex Park, located at 1250 Essex Drive in the South Shore community, will close for improvements starting Monday, Aug. 5.

Upgrades include a new observation deck, an additional sidewalk path, a water fountain, a picnic table, updated rubber mulch on the playground, as well as lighting improvements.

Construction is expected to continue through Dec. 3, with a tentative park re-opening date in early December. Wellington apologizes for any inconvenience and thanks residents for their patience and understanding during the renovation process.
