We have just been updated on the renovation status of Healy Field in Roslindale. Construction is scheduled to begin this Spring now that Fallon Field, another major Roslindale playground, has re-opened this fall. We are particularly invested in Healy Field because we met with the design team at Copley Wolff last spring. In the meeting, we discussed ways to better incorporate inclusivity in their initial designs. You can find the original plans and our feedback in our Healy Report. You may remember us talking about this meeting in our first blog post.
We are proud to see that some of our suggestions were included in the final design. Some examples include a relocation of the stream to allow for better navigation across the park, the reduction of the non-inclusive netted climbing structure, and a replacement of the original merry-go-round with a wheelchair accessible version that is flush to the ground. More details of the final design were analyzed by our friends over at Roslindale Wants to Play which you can find linked below.
