Park View Rec Getting New Otis Place Fence

In mid-February, the fence along Otis Place at the Park View Recreation Center gave out. Upon examination, it seems likely that the primary cause was deterioration of the concrete retaining wall which supported it. Even the sections still in place show cracks where the fence posts are sunk into the wall.

I’m happy to see that DPR has chosen to replace the fence with a higher fence along Otis Place set back and anchored into the earth. Last year during the field renovations several residents had raised the concern that the fence along Otis Place was too low — but there wasn’t any money in the budget to address it at that time. The primary concern was the relocation of the basketball court and the increased possibility of stray balls bouncing into the street.

    Nice placement…I hope they are going to put up the spikes so people can’t hang out there all night sitting on the wall.

    Hi everyone! Does anyone know if the renovations include any indoor exercise equipment like a treadmill or elliptical? Thanks! Laura
