Manchester closes part of the Livingston Park playground after parents raise concerns


MANCHESTER - Part of the Livingston Park playground is off limits after the city Parks and Recreation Department closed a bridge linking two play areas in response to concerns raised by parents.

Parents both complained to the city and posted photos to social media showing the fixtures of a bridge in poor shape. The Parks and Recreation Department also began working on repairs.

A Hooksett grandmother said she had never noticed the problem. "My grandson is on it all the time. The workers are around here all the time checking things out, and they are very good at taking care of the park," said Karen Tremblay.

City officials say fixing the bridge could take a few days if they have to call the manufacturer for new parts.
