  • 53 West Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem

    I approve of the city's efforts to encourage mask-wearing in light of the increasing number of COVID19 infections. However, there are few, if any signs at Forest River Park, and the only one we found was tiny, and had no Spanish (text) translation. Many people (even today) were not wearing masks.

    Kindly put larger signage (posters!) with Spanish translations in the parks (etc.), and maybe consider having police officers periodically walking the parks (etc.) to monitor for compliance, and encourage Salem citizens to comply with Board of Health instructions for the good of our community.

  • Forest River Park West Ave, Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    There are 2 sets of chains blocking access to both the beach and walkway between beach and pioneer village. There is no access for people in wheel chairs and the chains are not compliant with ADA laws.

    123 Loring Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Request to have a Do Not Block painted on Jefferson Ave, at the intersection of Preston Road. This will allow residents in this neighborhood to exit onto Jefferson Ave, when the light is red at the Loring Ave and Jefferson Ave intersection. Thank you!
  • Graffiti Archived
    Forest River Park West Ave, Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    Graffiti all over the place by the abandoned tennis courts. Kids are also graffitiing their trees which is disappointing.

    The ONLY street light in Forest River Park is not working. It periodically comes on for a few seconds but most of the time it is off. It has been doing this for months. This light is required as it is now getting darker earlier. It also helps to thwart anti-social activity in the park late at night (though most cars tend to loiter at the far end of the car park, near the beach).
  • 292-296 Lafayette St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    & Lafayette. The pedestrian crossing buttons stopped working after the recent rain. This is the intersection of Ocean and Lafayette.
  • 9 Willson Rd Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    asphalt sidewalk I. front of Horace Mann Lab School, just before the driveway entrance to Salem High has a big hole
  • 9 Willson Rd Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    The lumber in the woods has been there for a while, the discarded shelves by the sidewalk just showed up.
  • 22 Loring Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    A giant pothole has opened up around a manhole cover near the old Horace Mann school. It's a rim bender for sure.
  • Sidewalk Repair Acknowledged
    25 Lafayette Pl Salem MA 01970, United States - City of Salem
    I tripped on this broken piece of sidewalk when it became dislodged from the ground
  • 36 West Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    fireworks damage to city picnic table at FR Park, at the SE point behind the rock outcrop. Seems like this would be a good spot to monitor for teens with explosives.
  • 60-98 West Ave Salem, MA, 01970, USA - City of Salem
    There were at least three separate piles/bags of trash inside Forest River Park this morning. This was the worst/most scattered of them. All the trash cans are now by the parking lot but people are not carrying their bags out of the park.
