BIG Changes in Merrill Park?

I was driving home from work, to have a quick lunch, and this is what I saw in Merrill Park.  Nope, it's not storm damage... these trees were cut down, and work is being done.

Now, I have no idea what the real plan is here - but I do know that there is a plan.  I should probably know already, right?  I try to keep up with things going on around here.  I did hear rumors about them changing the traffic flow through the park.  And when I talked to some of the guys doing the work, they mentioned that the road was being widened here.  It seems like this side of the circle will be two way traffic, and it won't be a circle anymore.  But I don't have the real answers yet.

I came home with these photos and a lot of questions.  I called the Middlesex County Parks Department, but it is lunch time, so I didn't get anyone to answer the phone - yet.  I'll try again later.

In the meantime, if you know the plan, send me an email and let me know too, OK?  And I'll share it with everyone else who reads this.

Thanks!  Sue at

  1. Interesting! Love to do my running in and through the park. Whatever they do I can't imagine it ruining the running/walking experience that so many seem to enjoy. Curious! =)
