Gateway City Parks Program
Swasey Field is a 14 acre park, originally built in 1910 for millworkers. The heavily used park is located in an environmental justice neighborhood was in need of restoration. The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs Gateway City Parks Program funded design and two phases of construction of site improvements. The overall plan included an accessible perimeter walking path, a parking lot, a water splash pad, field stone walls, two renovated Little League baseball fields and a Regulation field, new basketball court surfacing, shade trees and a reclaimed sledding hill. Both phases were completed by the summer of 2015.
