With access to the Freedom Trail and expansive views of the Charles River Dam, TD Garden, and the Leonard P. Zakim Bridge, Paul Revere Park is a landmark in the City of Boston. The park’s new, fenced-in playground offers play areas for children of all ages with custom features including a Silver Teapot spring rider and custom clamps with decal silhouettes of Paul Revere riding his horse.
BETA prepared conceptual design plans through construction documents for the new playground for the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) as part of on-going construction of the North Washington Street Bridge Replacement Project.
A location for the playground was provided by DCR within the existing park. BETA provided conceptual design layouts within the playground limits that protected existing mature honey locust and tupelo trees. The DCR Playground Planner provided the conceptual equipment layout from the manufacturer and BETA coordinated the plan fall zones.
Site work for the playground included layout of perimeter wall to support poured-in-place rubber safety surfacing and fencing, bituminous walks, benches and grading. Native planting design included large deciduous trees, shrubs, and ornamental grasses. BETA was responsible for all aspects of Boston Conservation Commission permitting, the preparation of construction drawings, technical specifications for all site items, and construction support.
