Tranquil seating, flowering shrubs and a small stretch of grass for playing catch make this one-and-a-half-acre park…More a welcome neighborhood green patch—but it wasn't always so.
The park was once the site of the Somerville Junction train station. But after the Boston & Lowell Railroad abandoned the site in the 1930s, it turned into a dumping ground. When city officials surveyed the area in 2006, they found toxins, and urban debris (concrete, asphalt, and so on) piled up in layers up to 4 feet thick. Soon though, the park would be reclaimed.
Cambridge Health Alliance donated the $1 million parcel to the City. The City acquired an EPA Brownfields Cleanup Grant as well as state and private funding, and then kicked in City funds to match. The site was cleared, soil was replaced and grass and trees were planted. Pretty plantings and benches were the finishing touch.
Today, all are welcome (including dogs) to quietly relax here. And when the nearby Green Line station goes in, the park will once again serve commuters: this time as a pretty neighborhood passageway to the new station.
