Linehan Announces Funding for 5th St Park

Many factors mentioned by neighbors and residents were incorporated into this design.  Construction will work around the mature trees, and some new shrubs will be planted.  The basketball court will be kept but will be repaved and redesigned to include the markings for a wiffle ball field.  

Modern, interactive climbing equipment for all ages will be installed.  Sight lines from both Fifth and Gold Streets will be improved for public safety purposes.

“Since being elected I’ve made it a priority to see that our public parks in my district get the attention they deserve.  Most of the parks in my district have seen improvements and investment over that time.  The new scheme of Fifth Street Park includes a forward thinking design so that it has something for all age groups and so the space can be used in different ways,” said Councilor Linehan.

You can contact Councilor Linehan’s Office at 617-635-3203 or email at Bill.Linehan@cityofboston.gov.  You can also follow him on facebook, Bill Linehan, and Twitter @linehanbill.
