Tot lot closed all summer for fix-up

PONDSIDE—The popular Brewer-Burroughs tot lot, located near the intersection of those two streets, is closed for renovations at least until Labor Day, city Parks and Recreation Department Project Manager Scott Dupuis told the Gazette.

The $340,000 project will not significantly change the layout of the lot. Plans for the renovation, finalized in 2009, include new playground equipment; a rubberized play surface; and maple and flower trees to replace the lot’s current evergreen trees, the Gazette reported at the time.

The tot lot has not been renovated since 1993 and does not meet modern safety and disability access standards, according to city officials.
