Clarendon Street Playground

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>This neighborhood playground at the corner of Clarendon Street and Commonwealth Avenue is usually hopping no matter what time of day. It's a popular spot for families and young mothers to congregate with their kids, and a great resource for many local schools, including Commonwealth School, that take students there daily for recess. The playground gets especially crowded in the mid-morning and early afternoon.</p>
<p>Kids can enjoy two play structures with large and small slides, swings, a sandbox, and an open area ideal for games like soccer or tag.  Considered a community treasure, the playground is also a hot spot for social events hosted by the Neighborhood Association of Back Bay, which puts on activites like the annual family Halloween and Opening Day parties.</p> <p>In 2007 the playground underwent a $120,000 renovation to its amphitheatre seating area, and the NABB's Playground Committee works closely with the Boston Parks & Recreation Department to determine future renovations to the playground, as well as contribute to its  upkeep and maintanence. The Playground Committee is also always looking for volunteers.  </p>
