A public meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 19th from 6pm-7pm to discuss a new playground at Marine Park. Link to Zoom meeting:

In this public meeting, DCR and BSC Design Group will present final design for improvements to the Michael Joyce Memorial Playground at Marine Park in South Boston. In conjunction with Colin’s Joy Project, design input was gathered in the fall of 2020 via virtual assignments presented to children at South Boston schools. During the presentation, attendees will see the proposed new location, layout, and accessible equipment. In addition, DCR will share plans for a new family gathering space adjacent to the playground featuring seating and shade trees.

The public will be invited to submit comments after the meeting, with a deadline for receipt by DCR of February 9, 2022. Comments may be submitted online at Please note that public comments submitted to DCR may be posted on the DCR website in their entirety, and no information, including personal information, may be redacted.
