Learn about the Town of Eastham’s recent site improvements to the town-owned T-Time property at 4790 Route 6 at a Summer Kickoff and Ice Cream Social Saturday, June 25, from noon to 3 p.m. at the T-Time property.

Attendees will enjoy free ice cream, courtesy of the Ice Cream Café (while supplies last), as well as old-fashioned field day games, face painting, music and an 1980s-themed costume contest.

Representatives from the town’s Community Development, Recreation and Beaches, Police and Fire Departments will provide an array of family-friendly activities and games, including tug-of-war, sack races, and more. The Eastham Public Library will also be on site to sign up children and families for the library’s popular summer reading program. Picnic lunches and beach chairs are welcome and encouraged. All activities are free. To learn more, visit the town website.

In 2021, the Town of Eastham was awarded a grant of $29,800 through the MassDOT Shared Streets and Spaces Program to make a series of site improvements through the “T-Time Placemaking Project.” The goal of the project is to create opportunities for expanded public access on the vacant, 11-acre T-Time property, which is currently the subject of a community-led Master Plan process to outline its long-term use. To date, grant-funded improvements include cleanup of debris and landscaping, as well as installation of a new walking/biking path around the site, informational signage, a new split rail fence and picnic tables and bike racks.
