Watertown applying for federal grant for a Thompson Park amphitheater

June 16, 2020

WATERTOWN — The city hopes to obtain a Department of Defense (DOD) grant to create an amphitheater at Thompson Park.

The city is applying for the funding from the same DOD program that the Watertown YMCA plans to seek for its $16.7 million community center project in the former Concentrix call center on Arsenal Street.

The City Council on Monday night agreed to put together the application for the funding under the DOD’s Office of Economic Adjustment under the Community Infrastructure Pilot program, which is aimed at improving quality of life for military families.

No details about the project or how much the city plans to apply for was available on Monday night.
