Closure of Washrooms & Splash Pad

The seasons have changed, and the temperature is falling - the splash pad and washrooms at Rainforth Park are officially closed for the season. You will notice over the next few weeks that the playboxes and other moveable pieces in our parks and playgrounds will soon also be removed.

Thank you for a wonderful spring, summer and early fall - we hope you continue to enjoy our facilities over the late fall and winter.

Black Lives Matter

black lives matter

The Town of Berwick stands in support of the Black Lives Matter effort.

We encourage a healthy and safe community of mutual respect for all. We endeavor to make changes within our organization and in our town that discourages racism in any form and at all times.

The Town of Berwick commends those that have organized the ‘Black Lives Matter’ Peaceful Protest March that will be held in Berwick this Saturday- July 4th. The march begins at 7 p.m. in the Rainforth Park Parking lot on Cottage Street. Complete details are in the post on Facebook.

The Town of Berwick urges community members to attend, to learn more about the Black Lives Matter movement and to hear how we, as residents, business owners, employers and employees can all help to make Berwick an unbiased community. Safe and Respectful for everyone
