By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

The playground at River Grove Park is popular but there's no place for adults to sit and watch their children. 
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Parks and Recreation Commission is open to benches at River Grove Park and a have a simple solution to prevent Kemp Park from going to the dogs. 
The commission on Monday heard several updates and recommendations on the city's parks, including a request made through City Councilor Marie T. Harpin to install benches at the playground on Houghton Street. 
"They would like some more benches over there at River Grove Park at the playground," said Commissioner Timothy Koperek. "I went over there, and there is one bench and then they've been sitting on the plastic that holds all the material inside. And it's not very comfortable and you're sitting close to the ground and if you have kids and grandparents and parents there, it would be nice to have several more benches."
Harpin said she had been contacted by a woman who liked to take her grandchild to the park. There is the one bench, she said, but it's on one side of the playground that is separated into to sections.
