New Playground being installed at Oak Island Park

Story by:  Itemlive.com October 27, 2016 Volunteers spent last week installing new playground equipment at Oak Island Park. By THOMAS GRILLO REVERE — The city has a sparkle thanks to a volunteer effort to spruce up neighborhood parks, the business district and even a cemetery.

Add a Fire Pit this Fall!

“Fire is one of our best friends in this cold universe. Put some wood in it to show your gratitude” ~ Mehmet Murat ildan There’s something magical about an outdoor fire. Not unlike your home’s kitchen during a holiday party, crowds gather and unite around this bustling center of activity. S’mores, drinks, stories and laughter…all hallmarks of a well-planned evening! While building a fire really can be as easy as gathering some kindling and a lighter, the presentation and actual setting can make a major impact on the evenings ambiance and to what extent your guests are comfortable. New Englanders are no stranger to cool fall and spring evenings, so if outdoor fires are a regular part of your family’s routine and you want to move beyond that char-filled hole in the ground, it’s time for some inspiration. Whether you want a fire pit that serves as a focal point in …
