Memorial Park Expansion


Standish Memorial Park is currently undergoing a major expansion. With help from several generous grants and donations totaling close to $400,000, this park will be a tremendous asset to the community. Once completed, it will be home to three baseball/softball fields, a playground, dog park, soccer and multipurpose athletic fields and walking paths. This complex will be a premier outdoor recreation facility capable of hosting such community events as the Standish Summer Spectacular fireworks and festival, live music, outdoor movies, tournaments, youth and adult leagues and more.
 
Phase two of the project is scheduled to begin construction in September 2020 with an estimated completion date of fall 2021.
