Our Crews Have Been Working Hard in Improving Our Park

After the 4th Celebration

July 9th & 10th

The Village of Fonda is revitalizing the recreational and canal-side park within the Village of Fonda. This work is made possible through grants from the New York State Canal Corporation and the New York State Department of State. In addition, private donations have made it possible for us to continue this work. We will create a page acknowledging all those contributing to this project as we receive the funding.
