Join the Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce along with its staff, board, Ambassadors, and Catalyst on Friday, October 5th at 4:00pm to celebrate the grand opening of Kemble Park.
This is the site of the former Kemble Street School. It was closed and torn down in the early 1990’s. In 2012, New York State’s Department of Health attained a two-year grant worth $394,000 ($197,000 for two years) through the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Through a partnership with the county’s Department of Health, the City of Utica, the Utica City School District and the HomeOwnershipCenter, the plan was devised to bring a park to Cornhill. In 2014, the City of Utica received a $500,000 grant through the NYS CFA process and invested an additional $300,000 in order to bring the park to fruition.
Join us as we celebrate this beautiful addition to our city!
