Construction planned for 2016

Looks like Medal of Honor Park and the Lee Playground are in line for some big improvements.  Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department recently announced that the beloved City Point park will get an update in 2016 with some of the renovation beginning as early as a few weeks.  

Renovations will occur in two phases: the first will include pathway improvements at Medal of Honor Park followed by park and playground renovations to Medal of Honor Park and Lee Playground. The first phase, Medal of Honor Park pathway improvements, will begin later this month and focus on reconstruction and resurfacing of the park pathways. It’s estimated that these improvements will take three weeks to complete. During this time, Medal of Honor Park will be closed to the public. 

The second phase will be park and playground renovations and will include lawn restoration, new play equipment, and site furnishings, as well as other improvements to be discussed as part of a community meeting process to begin this September.  Sweet!

    With the new improvements can we put the dogs behind a fence and let the kids have free reign of the park?
