Northeastern’s $26 million park renovation plan will benefit students, city residents
Boston Magazine - 05/21/2015
Continuing its recent string of construction projects, Northeastern University has announced plans for a $26 million renovation to William E. Carter Playground on Columbus Avenue.
The best part? The new-and-improved park will be open to both city residents and Northeastern students. The finished product—estimated to reopen sometime in 2017—will include regulation-sized baseball and football fields, five new tennis courts, a children’s playground, an overhead dome over some of the fields for year-round use, a “passive park” for lounging and enjoying green space, and improvements to existing infrastructure.
