Portuguese Cove basketball/tennis courts to be resurfaced

HRM will resurface the basketball and tennis courts at Portuguese Cove this summer, but some local residents are hoping that while those improvements take place this would be a good time to make other changes to the 30-year-old playground.

Some of the improvements residents would like to see include:

-Grass is “thatch and spongy moss”
-No seating
-No gate door, making it unsafe for children who could easily run out onto Ketch Harbour Road
-No gravel paths, and a steep and narrow dirt-surface entrance present challenges for anyone in a wheelchair

Do you have other suggestions or complaints about the playground? I’ll post your letters: contact me.
