TOWN OF GREENFIELD THE FIRST IN COUNTRY TO INSTALL
PLAYGROUND MADE FROM RECYCLED OCEAN WASTE
Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony to take place June 6 at 11 a.m.
PORTER CORNERS, N.Y. – The Town of Greenfield will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony June 6 at 11 a.m. to celebrate the unveiling of a new “green” playground at its Brookhaven Park & Golf Course at 333 Alpine Meadows Rd. The playground highlights leading playground manufacturer Kompan’s new GreenLine products, developed from repurposed materials such as ocean waste and fishing nets. Greenfield was the first in the country to purchase and install Kompan’s new GreenLine products.
Kompan uses recycled materials, including textiles, food packaging, plastic bags, and discarded fishing equipment to create its raw materials and reports that its emissions have reduced 50% from before the introduction of the new method. Kompan proudly uses a verified method to specify CO2 emissions through Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspection and certification services. Kompan launched its GreenLine products in 2021.
“We are pleased to offer our residents an environmentally state-of-the-art playground and outdoor recreation space at Brookhaven,” said Town Supervisor Kevin Veitch. “It is part of our vision to expand our recreation spaces while preserving the natural integrity of our beautiful, wide open spaces here in Greenfield.”
The playground, which cost the town $130,000, includes a large climbing piece with two slides and a fire pole; a swing set with infant, single and multiple user options; a spica spinning pole; an arc tunnel climbing net; and five free-standing GreenLine pieces including a toddler train and carriage; an albatross seesaw; a dune buggy rocking toy; and a tipi carousel spinning toy. The playground is 5,184 square feet and is approximately 108X48 feet. It will appeal primarily to children 2 to 12-years old.
The playground sits across the road from Brookhaven Golf Course and The View Restaurant and features many acres of wooded trails and a 3,600-square foot pavilion for outdoor gatherings, which can be reserved by calling Town Hall.
“Our parks have an increasing social importance to our residents, especially after having our opportunities so limited for the past few years,” said Recreation Director Rebecca Sewell. “We have big plans to keep improving all of our parks, one at a time.”
The Town has plans to continue its park improvements by renovating its pavilion, building new restrooms, adding a 1.5 mile walking path and pickle-ball courts and expanding parking over the next few years. Sewell said the town’s future goals also include changes at Greenfield’s Porter Corners Park, a baseball destination for the region, which attracts hundreds of families each weekend from May to August.
The Town of Greenfield is home to 8,200 residents in Greenfield, Porter Corners and Middle Grove. It spans more than 41,000 acres of land bordering the Adirondacks. Brookhaven Park and Golf Course is a 365-acre park in Porter Corners. O.B. Beyer Recreation Park Inc., an employee organization of the International Paper Mill in Corinth, opened the facility in 1960 and donated it to the Town in 2011. The park features Brookhaven Golf Course, The View Restaurant, a newly renovated outdoor recreation space, and groomed snowshoe and cross-country ski trails in the winter.
The first snowfall of the season turns Town of Greenfield's Brookhaven Golf Course into a winter wonderland full of groomed trails for Nordic skiing and snowshoeing. At the foothills of the Adirondacks, the Parks beauty is on full display year round.

In 1865 the Adirondack Railroad was formed and began building tracks across Greenfield with stations at Kings, South Corinth, Corinth, Hadley and North Creek. By 1871, the Railroad reached North Creek. The Adirondack Railroad was sold to the D & H in 1889. Passenger service ran from New York City to the Adirondack Branch of the D & H. By 1890 one train made two daily round trips from Saratoga to North Creek. Most of the freight service carried lumber and paper.
In 2007 a Committee was appointed by the Town Board to determine what repairs would be necessary to make the caboose structurally sound and maintain its historical significance, as well as develop a plan for future public use. Committee members volunteered their services and spent countless hours renovating the Caboose and King’s Station, helping to create a Town landmark to be enjoyed by all. A Caboose Day Celebration is held annually.
