City’s Bronstein Park closed to public

MANCHESTER — City officials on Thursday closed Bronstein Park, which apparently has been the site of the most overdoses of the synthetic drug spice in recent weeks, to anyone not a student, parent of a student or employee at Manchester High School Central during school hours, according to a memo from Mayor Ted Gatsas to the Board of Mayor and Alderman.

 

Gatsas wrote that the transfer of the block-sized park, used by the school for such things as band practices and gym classes, from Amoskeag Industries to the city in 1970 indicated that the city had the authority to limit the park’s use and that further action by the aldermen would not be necessary.

 

Gatsas said Wednesday that the park will be closed off to anyone not affiliated with the school from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. any day school isn’t in session.

 

His chief of staff, Samantha Piatt, said signs indicating the park’s closure should be up by today or over the weekend, before band camp practices begin early next week.

City officials have said that adults occupy benches at the park and have been confrontational with city maintenance crews trying to cut grass.
