The Milford Central School student admits that he did not come up with the idea all on his own. He said the town supervisor played a big role with coming up with suggestions.
“I hope it provides people with an area to sit, where they can enjoy a baseball or tennis game,” Lang said. “I feel a lot of people use the park. I know there are always people down there on the playground, playing tennis or playing baseball or basketball,” he added.
According to Lang, labor for the project took about a week. However, he said there was a lot of paperwork and organizing that went into it.
He said he is required to do all the organization and logistics of the project on his own, but could get volunteers to help with the construction.
“My troop was very helpful,” he said.
Lang said he learned what really goes into building something.
“When you see something that has been built often you say, ‘oh that’s easy I could do that,’ but it’s really not. It really takes a lot more work than you would think.”
