Pathway opens at Berlin park


BERLIN — Games at Percival Park’s soccer field will now be easier to access thanks to a new pathway.

“It’s a great improvement,” said Greg Starr, an official with the Berlin Youth Soccer Association.

The association partnered with several town departments on field improvements.

The path officially opened Tuesday night. Mayor Mark Kaczynski attended the ceremony, along with parents and players.

“They did a great job,” Kaczynski said. “We want to keep the playing fields nice.”

The association recently recognized Steve Wood, foreman of parks and grounds, and his team, as well as Jen Ochoa, director of community, recreation & park services, and her team. The appreciation certificates say, “In Appreciation for your outstanding service, support and partnership with the Berlin Youth Soccer Association to improve the soccer fields for the benefit of the children of Berlin.”

Top soil and grass seed was also applied to the fields.

“Town employees don’t get enough recognition when they do a good job,” Starr said.

The town also made the park more handicap accessible. Recently,
