The Boston Globe is reporting today about a project I worked on a month or so ago, for Halvorson Design of Boston.
Friends of the Esplanade Playspace, a Beacon Hill parents’ group, is seeking to raise $1.5 million to build a 10,000 square foot playground designed for children from 5 to 12 years of age. The proposed location is west of the Arthur Fiedler Footbridge, near the Esplanade Cafe.
Mayor Thomas Menino and the State Department of Conservation and Recreation both have registered their support for the project. The project still needs approval. though, from the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
The Friends of the Esplanade Playspace are privately funding the project, and plan to establish an endowment fund for its maintenance and perpetual care.
