SCHOOL DEPARTMENT DRISCOLL SCHOOL RENOVATION PROJECT: Starting Monday, June 28th, the Driscoll School play fields, tennis courts and playground will be CLOSED in preparation for the School Department-led complete renovation project. 

When completed, the Park and Playground will include 185 new trees and a 21% increase in the amount of usable open space.  In addition, the new school will have 2 gyms which will almost double the existing amount of indoor play space.  The new field will be artificial turf which will also be far more usable than the existing natural turf playfield, (which is closed for much of the year).  Once complete, all these improvements will result in an increase in year round recreational space for the student body and the Brookline Community.  

To learn more, please visit the School Department’s project webpage. Please direct any questions or concerns to the Project Managers: Tony Guigli - Building Department (tguigli@brooklinema.gov) and/or Matt Gillis - Public Schools of Brookline (Matt_Gillis@psbma.org).
