East side of Greeley Park now considered for Nashua playground
The location of the playground, which is being organized and funded by Greater Leadership Nashua, has been a contentious and divisive issue in the city for the past several months. However, after an independent consultant conducted a study to determine the best possible site for the play structure, alderman agreed with the study’s findings to consider constructing the playground at Greeley Park East along the south side of the access road.
The west side of Greeley Park is not as ideal, according to Brooke, who said the parking is problematic. There is a slope leading up to the site and the existing play equipment at the location is unique and should possibly remain.The play equipment on the west side of Greeley Park, even though it is aged, serves well for older children, according to Brooke.
“I am a fan of your number one choice,” agreed Alderman Michael Soucy, Ward 5, adding he would prefer to keep the west side of Greeley Park more natural, with the various activities and new playground stationed on the east side.
The public hearing on the site location for Legacy Playground, a $250,000 gift to the city, will take place at 7 p.m. on June 11 at Nashua City Hall.
