Groton Skatepark gets a new coat of paint

Groton — The Groton Skatepark is looking a little more vibrant these days.

Jeff Paprocki was painting a section of it Friday in Sutton Park. He was the contractor that built the park and is under contract to maintain it.

Paprocki said he had been working on a few maintenance projects at the site. When those were finished, and since his business is a little slow at this time due to the coronavirus pandemic, he decided to volunteer his time between jobs to do the painting. The ladybugs, on the raised mounds in background, are part of the new paint additions.

The Town of Groton provided paint plus some paint was donated, and he has had a few friends volunteer to help paint.
