The Park is Looking Fabulous…

15 Aug

The fence is down, the splash deck is spraying, the boat launch is underway and the pool is open until NEXT Thursday, August 23. Thanks to DCR for removing the broken wading pool and reseeding the lawn–which has now taken. Picnickers are welcome there, but please tread softly!

The old broken wading pool is gone and the new lawn is open for picnicking!

The spray deck has been a great hit. DCR is working to resolve drainage issues there. Have patience! (Water has been draining onto the grass behind the pool, making it soggy.)

The spray deck is open until Sept. 3.

R. Bates Construction are hard at work on the canoe/kayak launch and outlook. We’re still hoping that you’ll be able to use these this fall.

Thanks to the good neighbors who have been picking up trash at the park. It makes a huge difference. Please feel welcome to join in. Also, thanks to the CRC and Adobe volunteers for removing bittersweet, pick up trash and weeding the flower bed in front of the pool house last week.

Adobe volunteers, working with the CRC, weeded the flowerbed.

Enjoy these last days of summer. The pool is open until August 23 and the spray deck until Sept. 3.

    Hi Cathie –

    I love getting your emails! Does the splash deck close when the pool closes?

    Thanks –

      Thanks, Peggy! It takes a village. Thanks to the fabulous board of Magazine Beach Partners, to DCR, to the City and to the community for all of their/your support. It wouldn’t be happening without all of you/us advocating for change. SAVE THE DATE: Our Benefit for the park will be Sunday, Sept. 16, 6-8pm, AT THE POWDER MAGAZINE (weather permitting). Please come for a lovely evening overlooking the Charles AND to demonstrate support for further improvements at the park. See you there!
