Smith Track is open for public use again, for a while

LACONIA — The running track at Opechee Park received a new asphalt base layer late last week and is now, temporarily, again available for public use.

The Parks and Recreation Department has announced that the final-layer resurfacing at Smith Track is slated for sometime this fall, at which time access will be closed for one to two weeks.

Officials remind residents and visitors that spikes, cleats, pets, bikes, rollerblades, rollerskates, strollers, carriages and motor vehicles of any kind are not allowed on the track.

People needing additional information are encouraged to call 524-5046.
