Speak Up: Which is your favorite local park?


A planned skate park has been postponed until next year by Dover Parks & Recreation because construction costs are expected to be double what they were when it was first proposed in 2020. Still on schedule are a new Dover Park building and splash pad and a Schutte Park dog facility. What are your favorite recreational facilities to use in parks in your community? What would you like to see added?
