The new parking lot at Patton Park is open, just in time to add more parking before Saturday’s flag football games.
A new berm was installed on Thursday and the parking lot is now open – albeit without any lines.
The parking lot is off Bay Road (Route 1A) near Weaver Pond.
DPW Director Bill Redford said the lot may still periodically close during weekdays for some work, but will now be open all evenings and weekends.
The lot had been closed since mid-August for the work.
A binder coat of pavement is down and it will remain that way until the project to install a new pool nearby is complete.
The new parking lot is one-way, with traffic entering on the north end and exiting at the south end.
