NORTH PROVIDENCE – The town’s widespread recreation facility upgrades now include Evans Field on Route 44 and Stephen Olney Park off Smithfield Road.

The work at Evans Field at 550 Smith St., including new Little League fields and revamped tennis and basketball courts, will be a complete rebuild and reconstruction, says Mayor Charles Lombardi, while Olney Park will have work done on three fields, plus a concession stand and construction of new baseball cages.

How about finishing the baseball field at the high school? Dishgraceful.

Welcome to the discussion.

We’ve recently revised our comment policy to help us be more consistent and to be in keeping with our goal to promote a better community conversation. If a comment is deleted, rather than complain about it, simply try again by modifying the verbiage.

Comments that will be deleted include:
  • Those that include threatening, derogatory, obscene, vulgar, lewd, racist, sexist or sexually-oriented language. This includes any name-calling/nicknames of people both on the local and national level.
  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
Please use the 'Report' link on each comment to let us know if you believe a comment was allowed in error.

What we at The Breeze would truly like to see are comments that add history and context to a story or that use criticism constructively.
