Simonds Park Improvements – Burlington MA

Description

Among other work at Simonds Park, in Burlington, Mass., the F.E.R.A contributed to the construction of tennis courts in 1934. The foundation of the tennis courts was broken stone, acquired from the “blasting and moving of a great quantity of ledge” while expanding the park’s ball field. The W.P.A. continued work at the site.
