New tot playground at Stewart Creek Park

Stewart Creek Park boasts new tot playground

Residents may recall unveiling of the new primary playground at Stewart Creek Park a couple years back. At that time, the original tot playground remained in place. However, as of July 9, the NEW tot playground has officially opened! There's a little room around the site for future enhancements, too. We hope you enjoy!

Road work sign

Road repairs underway at two intersections along Paige Road

Public Works crews have begun repair work on two intersections along Paige Road where the road has buckled - eastbound South Colony and eastbound Memorial. Motorists should expect eastbound lane closures of both South Colony and Memorial (at Paige) while the work is underway. Both eastbound lanes will be briefly closed during the initial stages of the work. The repairs are estimated to take about a month to complete. Expect minor delays in those areas and seek an alternate route if possible. Drive safe, especially in construction zones!
