VICTORY: Boston Parks Department Allocates Funds for Playground Improvement
MoveOn member Cathy Ware was worried about the state of her local community playground at the Beethoven School. Outdated play structures and poor groundskeeping made the playground dangerous for the young children who visited. That’s why she started a MoveOn Petition asking the Boston Parks Department to make the park safer. After many local residents signed the petition to show their support, the Parks Department allocated $335,000 for upgrades to be completed in 2014-15.
