68 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 4 - June 10, 2004 Sunset Park dedicated in Dewey Beach Dreams of a peaceful and environmentally friendly park in Dewey Beach came to fruition May 30. Under bright blue skies, dedicated volunteers who worked to establish Sunset Park on the Rehoboth Bay at Dagsworthy Street celebrated an official ribbon cutting ceremony with residents, visitors and local elected leaders. The small bayside retreat now features a welcoming gazebo and benches. Sunset Park, which occupies a scant stretch of land along the bay, was previously overgrown with the highly invasive grass phragmites and had fallen into disrepair. Dewey Beach residents Bob and Vivian Barry took the lead to see the space renovated through donations from individuals and local organizations. They enlisted the help of Envi- rotech, owned by Todd Fritchman, to see the space evolve as an interpretive, rather than recreational, park where visitors can learn more about the fragile bay environment including information on plant and animal life. Continued donations will be needed to maintain Sunset Park. Dedication plaques are still available for the gazebo and local artist Pat Riordan has rendered a watercolor of the bayside park which will be auctioned off at Dewey Beach Arts & Cats Shop in Izzy Plaza to benefit the maintenance of Sunset Park. Shown at right are (l-r) Envirotech owner and Dewey Beach Patrol Captain Todd Fritchman; Rep.
