Roslindale to get bandstand, indoor/outdoor pool and plan for library renovations
Mayor Menino and City Councilor Rob Consalvo visited Adams Park this morning to discuss the city's plans for capital spending.
In Roslindale, they said, Adams Park will get a permanent bandstand and new paths, while the Flaherty Pool will get renovations that will include the ability to open the pool up in the summer to a new patio, turning it into the city's first public indoor/outdoor pool. The Roslindale BPL, meanwhile, gets money for a study to plan for future renovations, such as a meeting room and blinds for its unique curved windows that can let in some light without blinding patrons. People who drive to the library will get a smoother ride after Cummins Highway is repaved later this year.
The announcements are part of a $200-million capital plan for the coming fiscal year that will also see Almont Park in Mattapan get a new artificial-turf football field and East Boston a whole new library to replace its current two small branches.
