Gateway City Parks Program
Taffrail Playground Splash Pad, Quincy, MA
Brown, Richardson + Rowe worked with the Executive Office of Energy & Environmental Affairs and the Quincy Housing Authority on the renovation of the existing Jean Kennedy and Taffrail Playgrounds, located in the coastal Germantown neighborhood of Quincy. The renovated spaces include a half basketball court, gathering areas for families, accessible walkways, a splash pad, and a brand new playground. The design features new play equipment for all ages, as well as bright, geometrically patterned safety surfacing. The playgrounds are surrounded by a variety of salt tolerant and native plants chosen to thrive in this coastal environment and provide shade for the playing children. The renovated playgrounds provide much needed outdoor recreational areas for the residents of Germantown.
