As our first Buttonwood on the Move project, we chose to restore the park’s basketball courts. These heavily used basketball courts had not been updated in 30 years. We raised more than $90,000 and built three new clean, safe basketball courts, which opened in 2014.
Our next big Buttonwood on the Move project is to create a nature trail through 18 acres of woods that lie north of the pond. This area has been overgrown and neglected for years. We are presently having an engineering study performed by RDLA, Inc. of Boston for the Buttonwood Brook Trail, the first phase of the project.
Down the road, we have our eyes set on restoring the tennis courts. Tennis players used to flock to Buttonwood Park, but these courts haven’t been maintained properly. They need our help so a new generation can safely play tennis in the park.
