In a recent report, Boston was listed in the top 10 of the United States for having the best parks and open spaces available to residents. One of the key indices for earning the award was the quality and accessibility of the parks.
One only has to look at the recent renovations that have been completed at LoPresti to see why Boston has earned this distinction.
More than $5 million has been reinvested in the park that includes new turf fields, wading pool, playgrounds, benches and basketball courts.
The park has been redesigned to accommodate every age element from toddlers to senior citizens.
This park is not in some remote section of our community but located within an easy commute of the Blue Line, buses and the Greenway.
It is thoughtful planning like this that makes Boston and many of its neighborhoods like East Boston, places where many families are calling home.
