Quechee — With needed repairs now completed, the pocket park overlooking the Ottauquechee River from Main Street is now open.

A combination of unseasonably icy weather and improperly installed handrails prevented the park, which was completed last year at a cost of $400,000, from opening earlier in the spring.

Hartford Town Manager Leo Pullar told the Hartford Selectboard during a Tuesday meeting that the park is now open, and the public is taking advantage.

“I go through there at least twice a day and it’s being used,” he said.

The park was built on the site of a building that was destroyed by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011; area residents have long been eager to see the former eyesore turned into a community asset, but uncertainty about what to put on the site, combined with complications arising from the use of FEMA funds, delayed the project for years.
