A group of parents in Roslindale say they're tired of watching playgrounds in other neighborhoods get upgraded while the only two in their neighborhood languish.
The parents have started organizing to get improvements to the Fallon and Healy Field playgrounds, such as water spray decks, if not to create more playground space in the neighborhood, especially in the "play desert" south of Roslindale Square.
Roslindale is currently facing at least our tenth consecutive city budget which does not include a single capital project for Roslindale playgrounds.
The parents are also pitching playground improvements as a way of helping local businesses - with more and better playgrounds, parents would be more likely to end visits with trips to local stores, rather than patronizing the stores nearby playgrounds in other neighborhoods and towns.
