Tufts University Athletic Field
College Ave & Powder House Sq, Somerville, MA 02144

Tufts University generously shares this triangle of land with the public—and we the public make good and fullMore use of it. Pointing at Powder House Circle like an arrow, the grounds are simply a wide open green space. Maples and evergreens line the edges as does a chain-link fence. The only "structure" is a single steel trash can.

But on weekends the field fills with young children's soccer teams that bring their own nets. At other times, sunbathers, casual soccer skirmishes and Frisbee fans sprout up. Others simply come to play catch. Though formerly an unofficial dog park, where owners met to let their dogs off-leash, dogs are no longer allowed.

Trum Field
Broadway & Cedar St, Somerville, MA 02145

That all-American sound—the crack of a bat sending a baseball into outfield—has been ringing out atMore Trum Field since its founding in 1903. But since a 2008 renovation, the dozens of little league and school teams that play here have done so in a much spiffier setting. Gorgeous real turf spans the 4.8-acre complex, which is home to two baseball diamonds, basketball courts and spacious bleachers. Like a crown, the new Marshall Sloane Field House sits before it all. It's arching roof creates shade for performers at community events, and below it houses clean restrooms. New landscaping and benches along Broadway transformed what was once just a chain-link fence into appealing public space.

In addition to providing much needed field space for local and student athletes, the field is also used for City events including the annual July 4th Fireworks.
