CARVER – The state is increasing its investments in a number of recreational facilities, including the Myles Standish State Forest.

Crews will construct a new basketball court and repave roads and sidewalks at the forest.

“The upgrades to the basketball half court and campground driveways at Myles Standish are a wonderful 100th birthday gift from the Baker-Polito Administration,” said State Representative Susan Williams-Gifford, who represents Carver, Middleboro, and Wareham.

“Increasing access to recreational activities is important to bringing up a healthier generation of children,” said Plymouth State Representative Matthew Muratore.

The upgrades are a part of an $860,000 allocation of state funding for recreational improvements at campgrounds and playgrounds in Massachusetts.

“It is important that kids have access to quality outdoor athletic facilities to stay active, healthy, and safe,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “From pickup games to sports leagues, our residents are drawn to the Commonwealth’s vast recreational resources and the thousands of acres of protected public land, and it is our responsibility to ensure those lands remain protected and our parks available for years to come,”
