Proposals for a skateboard park, an outdoor performance stage and another volleyball court at Latham Park go before the Barrington Parks and Recreation Commission again at its meeting tonight, Jan. 23. 

The committee will meet in the Senior Center in the lower level of the Barrington library building. It starts at 7 pm.

Recreation board member Patrick Sullivan has proposed adding two beach volleyball courts to Latham Park on Bullock’s Cove, which is undergoing some improvements to protect the beach from erosion. 

Barrington High School senior Alex Raad would like the town to create a skateboard park on Legion Way near the ice skating rink. The park is his senior project.  

The outdoor stage already has endorsements from the recreation commission and the Town Council. It is now being proposed as part of the town’s annual capital budget.
