Northeastern University Carter Playground
Roxbury, MA

Role: Owner’s Project Manager
Project Value: $26m

Carter Playground is a 6.7 acre site that includes: two multi-purpose turf fields, five tennis courts, inclusive playground and splash pad, passive corner park and streetscape improvements. Additional enhancements include improved infrastructure, such as irrigation and drainage, as well as field lighting and scoreboards. The University will place a temporary air structure—or “bubble”—over one of the playing fields during the winter months to extend the availability of the facility for both students and city residents. This transformed public park will be one of the largest city park/playgrounds in the South End and Roxbury.
