Have You Seen The Sign At Patriots' Park?
Some residents say the sign is new, but DEM claims the sign has been there all along.
Several Portsmouth residents are questioning a sign they say they first noticed at Patriot's Park this past weekend.
A few residents and even an elected, town official questioned the sign at Patriots' Park, which in bright red lettering states the park is closed from sunset to sunrise. The park is property of the Department of Environmental Management.
Some questioned if the sign was posted as a reaction to the NAACP's recent statements against the (mysterious) Occupy Portsmouth group. However, a DEM spokesperson says the sign has been at the park for some time.
"That sign has always been there," said Gail Mastrati, spokesperson for DEM.
Occupy Portsmouth, despite not showing at any scheduled protests to date, is supposed to hold a General Assembly at Patriots' Park on Tuesday.
