Beginning Thursday, April 2, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) has closed both the Charles Bank Playground and the Lee Wading Pool, located at 280 Charles St., to assist with construction at both facilities.
DCR will be replacing the surface of the playground and is constructing a spray deck at the pool. The state agency will also reroute pedestrian and bike traffic for a 250-foot section of pathway, which runs behind the playground and pool. This section, in turn, will be rerouted to the pathway, which runs along the Storrow Drive-side of the work site weekdays from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. The playground and pool closures are expected to last until Saturday, July 4.
