Overview

The playground design at Mayor Thomas M. Menino Park (Parcel Five Park) in Boston was envisioned in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings. Installed in a public park just steps from the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown Navy Yard, the inclusive playground incorporated a ramped PlayBooster® play structure, embankment slides and climbers, an Evos® play system and poured-in-place surfacing to ensure that there are many opportunities for active play, physical therapy and exercise for all abilities and ages. Even more, Mayor Thomas M. Menino Park offers a place for recovery and relief, and delivers a unique aesthetic to the views of Boston’s working waterfront and downtown skyline.
