What restaurant would you like to see open at the project?

I think Keons would be good for that location or maybe a Tuscan Kitchen like the one in Salem, N.H.. A nice seafood restaurant would be good too.

What kinds of trail amenities would make walking, biking, running, etc. more accessible and enjoyable along our proposed River Walk Pathway?

"... that will take the vacant and overgrown former factory site at the Bradford Commuter Rail station ..." - And demolish Skateland as well.

Hi Jen, Though Skateland will no longer be on the site, we have great plans to rework the site and the former Ornsteen site! We plan to provide housing as well as a public park that's loaded with amenities... Read more...

Bike share rental system as seen in Salem, Boston, etc. connect this to the rail trail, the downtown and adjacent neighborhoods

Affordable housing, instead of crowding and already crowded downtown with more yuppie money.

Jane - thank you for your comments! Our project team is working to make both the riverwalk and park accessible to all in the Haverhill community. We’re intending to meet the city’s goals for providing... Read more...

What person in their right mind would ever buy/rent anything in that neighborhood? What a joke.

Alan – thank you for your feedback. We appreciate your comments and hope that our development, along with the park, will be seen as a benefit to the neighborhood.

Haverhill needs a bbq restaraunt, and i dont mean the hidden pig, i mean a place that serves straight bbq food, brisket, ribs, pulled pork, bbq food, needs to happen

Jake - thank you for your recommendation. A few additional community members have made other restaurant recommendations, including BBQ, and we will take them under consideration!

hi, will this walkway go under the bridge and connect with the rail trail? That would be ideal if you could do that.

Hi Di. You, and many others, have expressed a desire for a connection to the trail over the bridge. We are working closely with The City to discuss the trail and any changes that are to be made.

The trail is suppose to be for walking only, signs state no bike riding. But many do ride bikes, and skate board . Co urbanize needs to clarify with city and Rail Trail committee criteria of usage.

How can we improve access to and amenities along the river?

A walking bridge from Haverhill side to Bradford side ... it’s good for foot traffic and social media (yay free publicity for the city)

Hi Elishia - a number of other comments also address a potential walking bridge across the river. We are certainly taking this into consideration in conversations with the City!

As we look to add housing, retail, and open space to this area, what types of safety and accessibility improvements would you like us to consider including? (i.e. certain places for improved lighting, widened sidewalks, etc.)

A cement pad with benches for people in wheelchairs and their friends/family. Also a wheelchair accessible swing would be great

How can we improve access to and amenities along the river?

Small grassy area with CLEAR access to actually see the River ... it runs through the whole city but there are very few spots that people can actually enjoy the view. Newburyport has an amazing boardwalk.... Read more...

Elishia. Great feedback and comments. We're working to make the park a place that the community will be able to enjoy - knowing the waterfront location is definitely special!

I think a splash pad with attached playground would be ideal. Many in the area do not have pools and there are many children who live in that area. There is a splash pad at passaqua park and it’s really... Read more...

Elishia - thank you for your comments! We're working closely with the City of Haverhill in an effort to create a park accessible for all. We appreciate your feedback and will take all your great comments... Read more...
