Haverhill’s Winnekenni Castle is getting a major upgrade this summer, City Councilor and Vice President of Development for the Winnekenni Foundation Thomas J. Sullivan tells WHAV.

In addition to the creation of a new 55-space parking lot for Castle patrons this summer, Sullivan hints at the development of a “safer,” ADA-compliant walkway coming in September that will provide locals direct access to the Castle and without having to return to Castle Road. Instead, guests are able to come in to the grounds between the Carriage House and Caretaker’s Cottage, Sullivan said.

“The parking lot improvement project is key to the future use of Winnekenni Castle,” Sullivan told WHAV. “These are exciting times at Winnekenni Castle and the Park in general.”

New lighting in the parking lot and a structural evaluation of the Carriage House is also on the to eventual do list, Sullivan said.
