FROM WALTHAM RECREATION DEPARTMENT:
The City has recently entered into a new contract to complete plans and specifications with Marshall/Gary LLC of Wakefield, MA to complete design services for the Graverson and Elsie Turner Park Capital Improvement Projects. The attached plan (Graverson & Elsie Turner) was approved after many community meetings held during the calendar year. The current plan for Graverson is 55% completed. The current plan for Elsie Turner is 65% completed.
Mr. Ben Gary will be meeting later this month with city officials to review the details of the project and begin the necessary work required with numerous city departments to complete the plan. We would also like to extend an invitation to those interested in sharing their ideas and thoughts on specific pieces of play equipment to be included in the children’s playground section of the designs. We are hosting two meetings for community input. Both meetings will be held at the Recreation Building, 314 Totten Pond Road, Waltham, MA 02451. Please plan on attending either Monday, October 19th from 4:00 – 5:00 pm or Tuesday October 27th from 6:00 - 7:00 PM.
Mr. Ben Gary and a representative of O’Brien & Sons, Inc. play equipment will be at the meetings to hear your ideas. As the project develops we will meet again when the plan is 100% completed. At that time it will be presented to the community with a projected timeline for bidding and construction period.
