The announcement says the East Somerville park will be closed until mid-October while it gets a new rubber play surface, new light fixtures, a new fence, shade trees, drainage improvements and repairs and fresh paint for existing play equipment.
The work was funded by a $350,000 federal Community Development Block Grant, the announcement says.
It says the project is part of a string of East Somerville park projects.
Recently, in July, the new Chuckie Harris Park opened at the corner of Broadway and Cross Street. WBUR's TheARTery said it's an "example of the quiet revolution taking place in playground design."
Also, the new East Somerville Community School, rebuilt after a major 2007 fire, will contain three outdoor play spaces. The school reopens on Sept. 4.
A new riverside park along the Mystic River, Baxter Waterfront Park, is expected to open in September, the announcement says. (Somerville Patch previously said it would open in August. Like with many projects, the opening appears to have been delayed a little.)
