Project Description

Corey Hill Park is located at the crest of Summit Avenue. The southern parcel contains an active play equipment area and lawn and the northern parcel contains an attractive overlook of Boston, trees over lawn and an open grassed slope, sundial, and seating. The playground, last renovated in 1989, is in need of complete replacement including site regrading and accessibility improvements. This project will replace all play structures at the site and review the layout and design of the active playground portion of the park. Renovations will improve safety, accessibility and multi-generational accommodations. Masonry work, benches, walkways, planting, and other site amenities will be included with this renovation.

  • New native plantings on both sides of the park;
  • New park furniture including accessible picnic tables, hammocks and lounge chairs;
