Monmouth Street Park: Phase 1

Monmouth Street Playground Structure

About the Park

The park is recorded in the Longwood National Register Historic District. Striking 1800s architecture borders 2 sides of the park, while the other 2 sides are bordered by apartment complexes and the rear of stores. The small-scale ornamental fence adds significantly, framing the park and giving it a clear identity. The vegetation includes a raised planting bed and specimen trees. It is located just a block away from Beacon Street. The park includes open lawn and pathways, as well as custom play equipment for young children.
