Several local parks have received facelifts over the years, but one Winchester park soon will get a splash of color and another will be a little brighter.
Heritage Park on West Washington Street will receive a new green-and-yellow sign, the Parks and Recreation Board decided Monday at its meeting.
Two stone columns will hold up the sign, which will read "Heritage Park" in yellow letters and will sit at the park's entrance. The project costs about $2,500.
The board also decided to open its wallet for some new lights in Lykins Park's basketball and tennis courts.
The project has been on the board's to-do list for years, but budget cuts consistently have stalled the new lighting. Three years ago, the board set aside $17,500 for the lights, but those dollars were struck in the revised budget.
