MANSFIELD — The town has been awarded a $65,592 state grant to renovate Harry B. Chase Jr. Place, a small park on Old Colony Way near the World War II Memorial bike path.

The funds will pay for a shade structure, shade trees, lawn care, benches and signs, Gov. Charlie Baker’s office announced Wednesday.

The administration awarded a total of $12 million to celebrate Climate Week to pay for park improvements and open space acquisitions in 43 communities across the state.

Harry B. Chase Jr. Place was created in 2017 in what was known as the former Fales Oil site near the rear of Jimmy’s Pub and buildings on North Main Street.
