Pawtuckaway State Park to be enlarged, slightly

Seacoastonline.com is reporting that, as part of a plan to bring another large shopping center to Epping's Route 125x101 crossing, conservation land will be purchased and added to our Park.

...more than 130 acres of land near Pawtuckaway State Park in Nottingham that will be bought for conservation. That land will allow the state to expand the park.

According the Park's website, it is currently 5,500 acres in size, so the addition will increase it by about 2.3%. No word on the precise location of this new acreage.
