Phase One of BRR’s master plan for 104 year old Swasey Park in Haverhill was completed just in time for summer fun! The Gateway Cities Park Program of the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs funded a spray pad that opened at the end of May.
Haverhill’s newest water play area is located in the heart of the park. Bordered by stone walls appropriate to a park that has been around for over a century, multiple spray jets from above and below were an immediate hit with the neighborhood kids.
Local resident/blogger Alison Colby-Campbell captured the zest of the delighted children with these great photos. Even though the temperature was hovering around 70 degrees over Memorial Day when the water was turned on for the summer season, whole families were ready to use the spray park in many creative ways.
