This photo shows a group of children running around in a playground on Stillman Street in the North End. In the photo, it appears the majority of this playground was simply wide open cement, however, if you take a look at the second photo shown below, you’ll notice there were several sets of swings in the back corner – making this a popular destination for children in the neighborhood.
The park today (known as as Cutillo Park) is still heavily utilized! It now includes several shaded areas, additional playsets and basketball hoops.
