Each week, City Manager Tom Aspell eats a snack and takes a nap. Sounds great to us! Read this city memo while we snooze.
You can take a dip soon
The city’s seven neighborhood swimming pools will open for the season June 20 at 12:30 p.m., Aspell writes. Note for new residents: the pools are not the size of actual neighborhoods.
The pools are free to use for Concord and Penacook residents with a valid form of ID. Non-residents may purchase a season pass for $113 at the Concord Parks & Recreation Office, which will allow them use of all the city pools for the entire summer (just not at once; that requires the special shapeshifter pass still in production). The department also has limited space left for summer swim lessons. Visit concord parksandrec.com for more information about the city pools.
Stairway to heaven
Cemetery steps refreshed
Two sets of steps in the Old North Cemetery were recently restored by cemetery staff of the Parks & Recreation Department, Aspell writes. No residents of the cemetery were disturbed, as far as you know. The steps were first placed in the cemetery more than 150 years ago, and had deteriorated due to aging and the encroaching root system from a nearby tree.
