Free Parking for the Holidays!

There will be free parking for the first two hours of meter parking in darling downtown Maynard. This lifting of meter fees starts November 29th and goes through December 31, 2013.

There are some great new shops in the downtown, so challenge yourself and see how much you can buy locally as you get ready for the holidays.

Reo Road Park is almost done!

Reo Road playground, whose construction was put on hold for more than two months now, will be, at long last, getting its center play structure! Woo hooo! The construction of the new structure was set to begin today, November 11th, and is expected to take three days to finish. Access to the park will only be allowed when the town has deemed the new piece safe.

In the meantime, we've been thoroughly enjoying Coolidge Park's playground and, on more than one occasion, have found ourselves there for nearly four hours. A favorite piece seems to be the blue, climbing web.

One question remains about Coolidge Park—why aren't the picnic tables under the gazebo-like structure? What's supposed to be going under there?

If you haven't been to Coolidge yet, get there before it gets too cold. And then when it does get too cold, go there for the sledding. Hopefully we can all get to Reo Road before next spring!
