Play Time at Pingree Park
After a year of planning and fundraising there are new swings, a crawl tube, a bouncy seesaw and a climbing structure with slides at Pingree Park in Londonderry. The playground is just the first sign of renewal this year: a practice backboard will be added to the tennis court after the court has been resurfaced. The backboards, rims and nets will be replaced as funds are raised for them. Plans for the dog park, installation of power, security lighting and cameras are ongoing. The old walking trail along the river will be improved and expanded to create a walking loop within the park. All of this has been made possible by the generous support of many businesses, agencies and community members. This summer, with the help of Mackenzie Peters, the Londonderry Town Parks Board is raffling off a locally raised pig. Tickets will be $5; only 200 tickets will be available for sale. Visit the Town office building during regular office hours, or email [email protected] Raffle tickets will be sold up until the drawing on August 17, at the end of Family Fun Day, which will again benefit the Pingree Park Revitalization Project. It will start at 11 a.m. and will run until 3 p.m. Admission will be $5 per person, which will get everyone access to all the fun and games, except the Dunk Tank. Food will be available at additional but reasonable cost. Come run, play, bounce, laugh and enjoy the new Pingree Park playground.
