Swings? Treehouse? Spider Sprayer? City Unveils 3 Concepts to Renovate Flaherty Playground

The Flaherty Playground is going to get spectacularly renovated, and the city would like your input on three concepts that include play structures, swings, water features, amphitheater seating, bicycle racks, and more. The Flaherty Playground is located at the corner of Brookside Avenue and Cornwall Street. The deadline to take a survey is June 16, and people can view a video presentation of the concepts, review the project page, and take the survey to offer your responses. Each of the three concepts are each based upon a theme: treehouse, waterfall, and clubhouse. The concepts all feature an upper level, lower level, a slope area with activities, a passive nature area, and maintain existing trees to the greatest extent possible.

The Parks and Rec design team will share feedback they received at the first meeting and through a follow-up survey, as well as some preliminary/conceptual designs for where certain activities and programs can be located in the new park design. There will also be a Q&A session. This is a virtual meeting. Join the Zoom meeting:  bit.ly/Flaherty2 

Mayor Walsh: How We’re Investing in Jamaica Plain

Here in Jamaica Plain, we’re making investments across a wide range of projects, including parks and open space, streets and transportation, our schools’ infrastructure, and our delivery of city services. Every spring, we release our Capital Investment Plan which funds the critical improvements to our infrastructure and facilities in Boston over a five-year period. It is a reflection of our priorities, and is guided by the voices of over 15,000 residents who offered input for our citywide plan, Imagine Boston 2030. Our Capital Plan funds the essentials of community life -- our schools, streets, libraries, and parks, including climate and resilience projects. It’s a commitment to all those who call Boston home and to our future generations.
