Clarendon Avenue playground has reopened, boasting $1.3M in improvements
The Clarendon Avenue Playground in North Cambridge has reopened, the city said in a Feb. 4 email.
The park, which is on Massachusetts Avenue, features an improved entry plaza and seating area and now includes more variety of play opportunities with the addition of swings, a water table to accompany a relocated sand play area and “loose play materials to encourage creative play,” the city said. There’s also new furniture, a new rubberized surface and shade structure and more plantings. The $1.3 million renovation was paid for with a combination of Community Preservation Act funds and free cash.
