Hains Park Driveway Project
The entryway to the Hains Park boathouse has been regraded, extended and repaved. The purpose of the project was to help mitigate water runoff problems from Boston Post Road. Curbing and additional stone and loam backfill have also been added.
Cross Lane Project
Exciting news, the courts at Cross Lane Park are being refurbished – so get ready to level up your basketball, tennis and pickleball game! The two basketball courts and two of the Tennis courts are being reconstructed. The third tennis court area is being made into four pickleball courts. The courts will be closed to the public for the next several weeks.
Project Update 9/2023: This project is progressing along nicely (minor delays due to weather). The courts have been repaved, the fence posts have been painted and they are starting the painting process on the courts which will take a while.
Project Update 10/2023: Pickle Ball courts are up and running and being used daily. We're still waiting for the new basketball rims to come in and the new tennis posts and nets to be installed.

Hains Park Usage Policy
The Town Woods Park was created to be enjoyed by the residents and organizations of Lyme and Old Lyme (LOL).

Old Lyme has deep roots in the sport of rowing. Thanks in a great part to Mr. Fred Emerson who enthusiastically donated many hours of his life and financial support to the Blood Street Sculls. It is highly unusual for a public school to have crew and our Lyme Old Lyme High School Crew is incredibly fortunate to have access to excellent equipment.
Lyme-Old Lyme Public Schools is a school district that has created an environment that focuses on enabling children of all ages to reach their full potential as scholars, artists and athletes of character.
