The Pittston City Street Department’s Public Property maintenance team recently began a series of repairs and improvements to Albert J. West Memorial Park on Swallow Street. The concession stand used by the Pittston Junior Patriots Mini-Football and Cheerleading was painted and improvements made to its exterior lighting. The running and walking track around the field is being re-graded and new cinders layed. The football field goal posts are being painted. With this being the centennial anniversary of the end of World War I in 1918, further improvements and repairs will continue to the park named for a Pittston City World War I soldier will continue throughout the rest of the summer.
