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.
