Bennett Park Update

3/16/12 Update:  A sign on the fence now says the children's playground will be open in March and the rest of the park this summer.  

According to the Department of Parks and Recreation, the playground at Bennett Park will remain closed for another six weeks.  Although the department had hoped to re-open the renovated space in late 2011, the discovery of a live electrical box under the area now requires corrective action.  Live wires and small children apparently don't mix well.


  1. By the way, there are some new signs up about the reopening of the playground. It looks like late March. The park looks so bizarre and barren, I can't wait to see the results.

  2. Thanks RunAmyRun. This is really a slow renovation!

  3. Any news on when the entire park will re open?

  4. According to the Parks Department, late summer 2012.
