Representatives from the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will be back in front of the Dorchester community Monday night to discuss improvements to the Erie/Ellington Playground.

The public meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m., will be held at the Erie Ellington Community Room located at 31 Erie St.

Monday’s meeting will be the second in a series of public meetings sponsored by the Parks Department to gather input about possible improvements to the green space, which is located at 125 Erie St. in Dorchester. The meeting was originally scheduled for November, but was postponed.

Approximately 16,000 square feet, the park is currently home to a playground, water play area, and benches, according to the Parks Department.

Last renovated in 1998, possible improvements to the park include new play structures, renovations to the water feature, and the installation of new lighting and furniture. Renovations are also expected to address the park’s walkways, code violations, and accessibility issues.

The budget for the design phase of the project is $44,000 and the construction budget is $370,000, according to the Parks Department.
