Picnic tables to the Inn Street Playground

This petition had 322 supporters


Inn st. is a beautiful hub of downtown Newburyport complete with shopping, restaurants, a splash pad, and a well loved playground.  This playground sees hundreds of children, of all ages, daily - from in town residents to visitors.  The one problem we see time and again is there is no where to enjoy a meal, especially if the benches are all used.  There is, however, a large garden bed that hasn't been able to flourish.  

Growing Humanitarians would love to offer what we see as one final touch to making this special park perfect.  We propose to install adult and child sized picnic tables with seating, paid for mostly by donations from local businesses and fundraising. These tables will be placed in the dirt bed between the outskirts of the park and the splash pad.  We believe that not only will it help many visitors to Inn St, but will help local restaurants who abut the park.   

We have talked to the city and the parks department, and are on their agenda for October 10th.  To make a strong argument for the need for these tables we are asking for your signature in support of this project.

Please sign and share so that we can show the parks department how many families are interested in finishing the inn st park.
