Benjamin Brown School Schoolyard Renovation
The Benjamin G. Brown School is located in Ward 5 at 201 Willow Avenue and serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Built in 1900, the Brown School is the oldest elementary school in Somerville and does not have any interior recreation, physical education, cafeteria, or assembly spaces.
The Brown Schoolyard will be renovated in the summer of 2023 to cause the least disruption to the school, which relies on the yard during the school year. Created in collaboration with the Brown School community, teachers, and the school administration, the new design features a small synthetic turf field, basketball and wall ball courts, graphics for games as well as significant improvements to the surface and subsurface drainage. The resurfacing will also make the schoolyard accessible in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
