New Playground on Salem Common
Today is a glorious day, weather-wise, in Salem. It seemed particularly like an appropriate time for me to go take photos of the new children's playground on Salem Common. The playground is intended for little ones who are 5 to 12 years old. There is even a special surface that is helpful to children of all abilities in being able to use this area.
The money for the playground was raised by two community groups -- the Salem Common Neighborhood Association, and Parents United of Salem. While I was president of the Salem Rotary Club, our Club donated $6,000 to the effort as well.
The results are certainly worthy of a great little city like Salem, Massachusetts.
If you are planning to visit the Hawthorne Hotel, and have little ones traveling with you, you will be happy to know about this excellent new addition to the neighborhood.
I hope to see you here.
