The work began with the thinning of the dense canopy of trees that clogs parts of the 13-acre park, said State Rep. Lisa Baldelli-Hunt (D-Woonsocket). In the months ahead, she said, other contractors would be hired to build two basketball courts, a splash park and a baseball field to replace the existing tennis courts.
