Latham Park Ribbon-Cutting Scheduled for Sunday, 11/9/14 at 2 pm

The Town will officially re-open Latham Park in Bay Spring on Sunday, November 9. Please join us at the Bay Spring Community Center, 170 Narragansett Avenue, at 2 p.m. for hot cider and other refreshments. The ribbon-cutting will take place at the park at 2:15 p.m.

Project features include:

  • A new accessible walkway along the shore

  • New benches along the shore path; new bike racks

  • Reconstruction of the parking lot with a new rain garden within a central landscaped island, filtering runoff before it reaches the cove

  • Repairs to the stone revetment with enhanced public access to the water.

The Town contracted with East Coast Construction of Portsmouth, RI, and Wright-Pierce Engineering of Providence to design, permit and build improvements at Latham Park on Bullock Cove. The Town used funding from a $75,000 RIDEM recreational improvement grant and $150,000 in local funds to complete the project.


Judge Procaccini has issued a decision affirming the Planning Board's approval of the Palmer Pointe master plan, for development of 40 new units on Sowams Road. Read the decision here.
