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.
