Haven School Playground is the next neighborhood playground to be renovated. The goal of this project is to improve park aesthetics, safety and functionality. The Park's site work has not been substantially rehabilitated since the 1970s. In 1998, new playground equipment was installed; this playground equipment will be retained as part of the new improvements. Richardson & Associates, Inc. has provided design services for the improvements and with City staff held four public meetings at the Portsmouth Public Library. At these meetings, residents were asked to give their input on the current condition of the park and what they would like to see for the design of playground improvements. Attendees looked at various samples of park improvements and recorded their level of like, dislike or neutrality. Afterwards, participants were given an additional opportunity to comment on the potential design. Subsequent meetings reviewed design plan alternatives, tree removal and replanting strategies and other input.
