WATCH: A look inside the athletic bubble complex on Boston’s William E. Carter Playground

The bubble covers an athletic field on the newly renovated William E. Carter Playground, allowing Northeastern students and Boston residents to use the park year-round for sports and other recreational activities. The inflatable dome rises 72 feet above the playground, a once forlorn city property on Columbus Avenue that received significant upgrades as a result of a public-private partnership between Northeastern and the city of Boston.
