A total of $834,000 will be put into renovating three Medford parks, according to an announcement by Mayor Michael McGlynn.

Columbus Park, Morrison Park, and Hickey Park are the recipients of federal grants, which will be used to make Morrison and Hickey parks more handicapped accessible, and improve the softball facilities at Columbus Park, McGlynn said in an announcement Friday.

A new field, batting cage, dugouts, and fences are all part of the renovation project at Columbus Park, expected to be undertaken this spring. Work on handicap ramps and other accessibility elements will start this summer at Hickey Park and Morrison Park.
