General Information

Description -
*Information Provided By Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation*
The new youth athletic fields are the result of a groundbreaking public-private partnership between the Massachusetts Executive Office of Environmental Affairs (EOEA), the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and three very special local nonprofit organizations: the Red Sox Foundation, Hill House and the Esplanade Association. Working together, these three charitable organizations are a symbol of the Commonwealth's "new model of stewardship" for our open space resources. The nonprofit groups raised more than $1.8 million in private funds for the rebuilding of the fields, located in Lederman Park. The repairs were required to correct persistent flooding that frequently prevented play in the past. In addition the state's taxpayers contributed $175,000 through the EOEA Office of Public Private Partnerships (OPPP) towards the reconstruction of this well loved state park. The Ebersol family recently pledged an additional $500,000, through a matching challenge grant program, to create an endowment for field maintenance that will protect the capital investment in this vital public resource.

Climate - Boston experiences a continental climate that is very common in New England, but with distinct maritime influences due to its position on the Atlantic Ocean. Summers are typically hot and humid, while winters are cold, windy and snowy.

Location - Located along the Charles River on Boston's famed Esplanade
