Merrimack, N.H.

Planned site of dog park changed

The Town Council has decided to change the site of a planned dog park. The pooch park will now be placed next to the nonresidential parking lot at the south end of Wasserman Park. The council’s dog park subcommittee originally selected Watson Park in the center of town off Daniel Webster Highway, but the location was changed because the site off Naticook Road at Wasserman Park is away from the street and has plenty of trees, public restrooms, and water spigots.
