Beacon Falls reopens Matthies Park


BEACON FALLS — The town has reopened limited access to Matthies Park.

Officials closed the park on Pines Bridge Road due to safety concerns in the wake of Tropical Storm Isaias earlier this month. Officials reopened the park Aug. 20 for access to the pavilion, paved roads, and pond for kayaking, canoeing or fishing. All hiking trails remain closed due to tree hazards.
