Revamped Adams Park officially reopens; farmers' market returns

Marty Walsh cuts ribbon with help of neighborhood kids and giant golden scissors.

Roslindale residents, city parks workers and elected officials gathered in Adams Park this morning to rededicate the park after a summer-long renovation project that features new walkways and benches - and a new irrigation system that means volunteers will no longer have to water plants by hand.

Olympics proposal calls for public to be shut out of key parts of the city

The Globe reports Olympics backers have come up with a "compact" Olympics plan that would involve shutting off a number of large public venues for the athletes and the rich people who will jet into Boston to watch them.

The marathon would end on Charles Street by the Public Garden. Franklin Park would transform into an equestrian venue.

The proposal does not include plans for a separate Olympic Park, O’Connell said. The city itself would fill that role.

The Globe notes that putting on the Olympics would cost $4.5 billion - and that DOESN'T INCLUDE THE COST OF REQUIRED INFRASTRUCTURE UPGRADES, such as the fast and expanded subway service that organizers are counting on.

The farmers' market, which had been held up at the commuter-rail station, will re-open in the park tomorrow as well. It will then run through Nov. 22.

Smoker blamed for nine-alarm fire that displaced 54 in Allston

The Boston Fire Department says "careless disposal of smoking material" led to a fire last month that ravaged two apartment buildings on Harvard Terrace.

A spokesman says somebody discarded a still lit cigarette or cigar in an interior stairwell in the rear of 12 Harvard Terrace sometime in the early evening of Sept. 3. The fire spread rapidly up through the building and caused heavy smoke damage in two adjoining buildings.
