mothers rest playground, fenway, Boston
Nestled next to the Muddy River, Mothers Rest has been a respite and recreation space since Olmsted’s original plan for the Emerald Necklace. CBA's design, built into the hillside, revitalized the site. A central stage doubles as a play feature, with climbers up, a slide down, and musical instruments. The sculptural play elements selected added both a contemporary flair to the site and added challenging play, while respecting the historic setting. Both the Landmarks and the Conservation Commissions were consulted in the process.
