The Michael Fucci Memorial Park at Shawmut is located at the end of Thacher Street. Joining the pre-existing skateboard park, is a half-mile lighted walkway around the existing pond, aeration and ornamental fountains in the pond, a handicapped accessible fishing pier, three new pavilions, restrooms, a concession stand, children's play area, horseshoe pits and 56 parking spaces. There also will be two soccer/football fields.
Dogs are allowed in the City's parks, provided they are leashed and not running freely. The City ordinance making dog owners responsible for cleaning up after their dogs is also in effect in all City parks.
To reserve a pavilion at Veterans' Memorial Park or Michael Fucci Memorial Park, please come into City Hall. Use of the pavilions is $25 for City of Hornell residents and $50 for non-residents.
Veteran's Memorial Park and Michael Fucci Memorial Park are both "Carry In - Carry Out" parks. Please be sure to take your trash home with you. The parks belong to all of us...it is our responsibility to care for them and protect them for generations to come.
