Central Hill Playgrounds to Close Friday, October 11, Through Approximately Fall 2021
The Central Hill playgrounds on Highland Ave. are expected to close Friday, October 11, to advance construction of the new Somerville High School. A renovated version of the playgrounds, tentatively projected to open in the fall of 2021, will be established in front of Central Library as part of the Central Hill Campus Plan. Patrons are encouraged to use other nearby parks and playgrounds during the closure. Edward Leathers Community Park, the Cummings School Community Playground, Cremin Playground, and Walnut Street Park are all less than a half-mile walk from Central Hill.
