The SNA is sponsoring separate public forums on the future of two iconic features of the neighborhood – the tot lot in the Summit Avenue Park and the fountain in Lippitt Park.
The discussion of the playground will be at 5:30 p.m. Monday, June 12, in the park.
The discussion of the fountain will be at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13, in the Summit Commons café area at 99 Hillside Ave.
In the tot lot, the city Parks Department will present its plans for the next phase in the park’s renovation, the first phase of which implemented the community gardens. This next phase focuses on playground updates, new play features, new safety features, new seating and plantings.
There are more details on Facebook at https://tinyurl.com/y8v65j2o.
In Summit Commons, Parks Department Director Wendy Nilsson will share data, costs and other information to foster discussion and help answer questions (and perhaps even come up with some solutions) prompted by the recent reminders that the Henry Bowen Anthony Fountain is unsafe and off-limits for people, whether to play in the water or be on the structure itself.
The Facebook event here is www.facebook.com/events/282409535498160/.
Please join other members of your neighborhood in either or both of these opportunities to make your views heard.
