Construction of Summit Street Park progressing

A new gazebo will be available for residents to use.

PAWTUCKET – Construction of the new Summit Street Park, alongside Summit Street and overlooking I-95, is moving along quickly.

The contract for the passive park was awarded to Green Acres Landscaping and Construction Co. Inc.

The project includes the installation of a new gazebo, concrete walkways, lighting, fencing, landscaping, lawn areas, new electric and water service, and an irrigation system.

The new park is expected to be complete by late November. The budget is $282,065, funded through a federal Community Development Block Grant.

“As we continue to invest in our infrastructure, roads, and schools, it’s important that we also create spaces for residents to get outside and enjoy their neighborhood,” said Mayor Donald Grebien. “I look forward to opening the park with residents and those that have been advocates for these projects.”

A new cement walkway leading to the gazebo was installed last week.
Crews remove dirt from the Summit Street Park, now under construction near the entrance to the Quality Hill neighborhood.
