Secluded Route 110 rest area to reopen

Closed when it became place for criminal activity


Fiorentini said about 30 neighbors attended an informational meeting at the park earlier this month and that “everyone there was in support of re-opening it for specific activities such as fishing, walking and picnicking.” Dog-walking will be allowed in the park as long as the animals are on leashes, the mayor said.

A state trooper who attended the neighborhood meeting and lives nearby said state police will help local officers keep a close eye on the park, Fiorentini said.

The park is named after controversial Colonial heroine Hannah Duston. It is believed to be where Duston’s canoe landed after she escaped from a band of Native American Indians who had kidnapped her from her Haverhill home and taken her to New Hampshire.
