The City of Dover, in collaboration with the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire and many generous supporters, has created the new, innovative Dover Adventure Playground. This unique play area features a life-size flat-bottomed vintage gundalow boat, a net climber, swings and slides, a 3-story Garrison tower, a 1,200 pound, 3x8 foot climbable Alewife granite fish sculpture, a splash pad, musical instruments and will eventually include a life-sized “whale’s tail” sculpture perched on the roof of the Dover Pool.
Dover Adventure Playground HOURS:
Spring & Summer: 7am - 9:30pm
Fall & Winter: 7am - 7pm
Splash Pad Hours: 9am - 8pm
Name the Alewife
The public can vote on the top ten name suggestions for the Alewife fish sculpture through Thursday, July 27th, 2017. The top three names will then be turned over to a panel of judges to choose the winner! The winner will be announced at the beginning of August, 2017.
