Northeastern to turn city park into athletics complex
The Boston Globe - 05/18/2015
Northeastern University will spend $26 million to transform a rundown city-owned park into a state-of-the-art intramural athletics complex that the school will share with the public and youth sports leagues.
The William E. Carter Playground, near the Southwest Corridor along Columbus Avenue, is currently a popular spot where Northeastern students and nearby residents toss frisbees, play tennis, or just hang out on nice days. But the tennis courts there are aging and the main field is patchy, often filling with puddles when it rains.
