Park opens on university campus


Bridgewater State University students, making their way to classes from dormitories and parking lots, have been forced this fall to make a large detour around a former commuter parking lot being torn up and replaced with a green space in the heart of the campus. The loss of the lot had been the source of several student complaints when school opened in the fall. And while parking in the center of campus will be a thing of the past, the opening of University Park and its walkway last week shortens the distance from lots to classrooms, according to university spokesman Bryan Baldwin. Once the grass comes in, Baldwin said, “it’s going to be a wonderful space in the center of the campus.”
