With the number of users we see in our parks throughout the year, playground equipment, benches, tables, and other equipment are sure to see wear and tear and potentially to be damaged and need to be fixed, removed and/or replaced. This would also apply to fallen trees, broken fences or anything out of the ordinary within one of the parks. We ask that if you notice something that you feel is not safe or needs attention from the Parks and Recreation staff, please contact us at (603) 542-7019 and ask to speak to the Director or e-mail Parksandrecinfo@claremontnh.com.
