City commits $25K makeover for playground

Portland Street playground to host neighborhood block party tomorrow, review design plans


“It’s an area that is in need of attention,” Recreation Department head Vincent Ouellette said of the Portland Street playground. “Over the years, numerous groups have adopted it and have cleaned it.”

City Council approved the city’s financial commitment to the project at last week’s meeting.

“Everyone benefits when city government, civic volunteer and religious organizations, neighborhoods and individual volunteers work together to achieve a common goal,” Councilor Colin LePage said. “The Portland Street playground is another example of the growing community spirit in Haverhill.”
