Good News from A Great City Haverhill, MA
One thing that aggravates The Heartbeat of Haverhill is when people post pictures of Haverhill and only include the downtown area. While the Downtown is undeniably good looking and evolving into a thriving district, Washington Street alone can never define our city that is a showcase of diversity in landscapes – from downhill skiing areas to our own vineyard to the river front and our private beach, the options go on and on including our fabulous working farms. Haverhill is the Massachusetts city with the third largest geographic area so there are surprises and secrets across our 35 miles that THOH has yet to discover.
The other day The Heartbeat of Haverhill rediscovered a beautiful setting to share with your family. A place to leave the electronics at home and just enjoy what nature, the Tattersall Family and the City of Haverhill have provided for us.
THOH hadn’t been to Tattersall in a long time and so didn’t know of all the enhancements.
Slides to take the adventuresome from the parking lot level to the lower level children’s play area
Well placed benches for contemplation and trails for easy hiking.
Antique tractors and farm equipment.
Better parking and signage describing everything from apple trees to tractors, a portapotty,
And so many beautiful sights and sounds. The nesting birds sing and dart about, a baby rabbit scooted out of view, apple trees bursting with young fruit, flowers and fields. If anyone can identify the flowers that would be great!
If you’ve never visited, check out Tattersall Farm, If it’s been a while, go back again, very soon. This must be the most beautiful time to visit, though THOH is pretty sure we could say that about every season.
