ASHLAND, Mass. — After repeated requests from several residents, Ashland selectman agreed this week to meet with Department of Conservation and Recreation staff to talk about reopening the 470-acre Ashland State Park, reports MetroWest Daily News.
MetroWest Daily News reports that technically the park is not closed, but it has fallen into disrepair since the DCR’s drastic budget cuts in 2009.
Selectmen said they don’t have the money for park upkeep or a good understanding of what reopening the park would involve. But they did promise to meet with DCR about potentially leasing the park from the state, reports MetroWest Daily News.
