The Martin Playground in Dorchester will soon be open again to the public.
After a long year and an investment of $374,000, provided through Mayor Thomas Menino’s Capital Improvement Program, the park will be reopened Oct. 22.
To celebrate the occasion Menino will join Dorchester residents for a day of fun with face painting, live music and refreshments at the park located at 95 Myrtlebank Ave.
Some of the improvements to the park which began in the fall of 2010, include two new age-appropriate play structures along with a new drinking fountain and improved fencing and shade structures.
The celebration on Saturday will begin at 1:00 p.m. and residents seeking more information can call the Boston Parks and Recreation Department at (617) 635-4505.
