The long awaited renovations of Langone Park and Puopolo Playground on Commercial Street in the North End are finally here! Work will begin the week of July 1, 2019.
The Boston Parks & Recreation Department began the community process to propose improvements to the parks back in October 2017. Two final design concepts were publicly released in May 2018. There was much discussion about whether Puopolo Park should be natural grass or artificial turf. In the end, the City decided to use artificial turf. The final plan rendering is most similar to Concept Plan B. Find more details on the City’s project website.
