'Touch The Trucks' Event
As part of National Public Works Week, Needham's Department of Public Works will host its annual "Touch the Trucks" event on Saturday, May 19. Families are invited to drop by anytime between 10:00 a.m. and noon at the DeFazio Park parking lot (next to the Tot Lot) on Dedham Avenue.
Little kids and “big kids” will enjoy a morning of fun behind the wheel of big rigs, front end loaders and pick-up trucks. Free admission to this fun family event is sponsored by the Department of Public Works and the Park and Recreation Commission.
More About DeFazio Park
DeFazio Park recently underwent an extensive renovation and is now home to several first-rate athletic facilities. Baseball and softball players will find nirvana with Asa Small, a 60-foot diamond, and John McLeod Field, home to two 90-foot diamonds. Athletes in other sports will also find two multiple-use fields (complete with lights and a synthetic turf) and an eight-lane track.
Amenities at DeFazio include public restrooms and a picnic area with grills. Children can make use of the park's playground and shade can be found in the large gazebo. Dogs are permitted, but must be kept on a leash.
