Massachusetts DMF Awards $10K to Peter Igo Park

With the help of 'Friends of Peter Igo Park' and Marshfield Harbormaster, Mike Dimeo, the town of Marshfield and Peter Igo Park were recently awarded a $10,000 grant from the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries to improve access to the Green Harbor River for recreational fishermen, kayakers ,canoes, and paddle board enthusiasts. The Green Harbor River borders Peter Igo Park.

On behalf of the Director of Marine Fisheries , we thank Marshfield and the ‘Friends of Peter Igo Park’ project is funded by your salt water fishing licenses. Projects like this are exactly what we had in mind when we started this program, and I am so glad that ‘Friends of Peter Igo’ applied. During the application process I saw the great work that the ‘Friends of Peter Igo Park’ Rangers had accomplished. We at Marine Fisheries are proud to be involved with this project and, personally, I cannot wait to catch a striped bass from this location.

What this group, the ‘Friends of Peter Igo Park’ have done over the last several months and continue to do is enormously helping our Green Harbor Restoration Project!

While helping to continue to improve access to the great Green Harbor River, this Grant helps the Towns’ continuing effort to improve Public Access to recreational space within the community.
