A group of sixth-graders from the Clarence R. Edwards Middle School in Charlestown visited the Boston Parks and Recreation Department last Tuesday to present their own plans for a park near their school.
The seven students presented their model of a redesigned Edwards Playground to Parks Department staff at the department’s headquarters in Roxbury.
The students built a model of the Charlestown park out of clay and paper showing how they would redesign it. Their improvements included a dog park, outdoor spa, swimming pool, lake, bridge, a rock wall and space for bowling and golf.
Parks Commissioner Antonia Pollak met with the students and showed them the master plan for the Edwards Playground.
Edwards Playground is slated to be renovated soon and Pollak encouraged the student to take park in that planning process.
