Edward L. Leathers Community Park

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Shade trees, a bounty of benches, and some creative play equipment for the kids can be found at this pretty urban oasis—for both people and dogs. While bipeds can walk the two gracefully designed paths lined by over 60 trees, dogs can run free in the adjacent off-leash play area. And if anyone get's thirsty, the water fountain has a spout higher up for humans and a water bowl for canines below.</p>
<p>Built in 2008 with the help of an Urban Self Help Grant from the Massachusetts Department of Conservation Services, this park is a shining example of the City's recent efforts to green up Somerville. Though just about the size of one square block, you can plop down on a bench here and lose yourself in nature.</p> <p>The park is named for former Somerville resident Edward L. Leathers, an Army Pfc. and WWII veteran.</p>
