Our Community Partners in Roslindale, MA

The Boston Parks and Recreation Department (BPRD) selected Weston & Sampson to plan, design, and implement meaningful playground improvements at Fallon Field in Roslindale. We collaborated with the BPRD and residents at an extremely high level in an effort to bring additional accessible, state-of-the-art playground features to an area that has been characterized as a “play desert.” Our design development plans accommodate dramatic elevation changes and include a 30-foot high rope climbing structure, a 38-foot slide, an “urban wilds” maze, play facilities for both younger and older children, a spray pad, and a playhouse, as well as shade and seating amenities. To make this playground a truly unique place, we incorporated artful additions into our plans, such as matching vertical posts and a slanted archway entry to the little kid zone. After successfully navigating a spirited, collaborative, and constructive public engagement process, Weston & Sampson provided final design documents and construction administration for the Fallon Field playground improvement project.
