Repaving in the Public Garden, Boston Common and Comm Ave. Mall

The Friends of the Public Garden said the Public Garden project could be finished by mid-November.

The entrance to the Public Garden at Beacon and Charles streets will be under construction until the middle of this month as the city repaves and completes some drainage work. 

The city is conducting pathway improvements and site drainage work in the northeast quadrant of the Public Garden. They should be done by mid-November but depending on the weather part of the work may have to be finished in the spring. The ducklings are covered for their protection.  

The Public Garden project is part of a wider plan to repave or spot treat parts of downtown parks walkways, including those on the Common and Commonwealth Avenue Mall, so that tripping hazards and puddling issues will be reduced.  

"As it is a paving project we hope that it will be a just a brief disruption to the community and users of the parks. The goal of this project is to improve pedestrian accessibility within the parks by improving the pathways in greatest decline," Jacquelyn Goddard of the city's Parks Department told Patch.

Each of these parks will maintain the ability to capture storm water and infiltrate onsite. On the Boston Common, the department will install an infiltration basin beneath the pathway near the McArthur Mall so that storm water will slowly be released into the ground, thereby reducing puddling. 

The Make Way for Ducklings statue has been covered for its protection. But the Friends has free postcards of the ducklings available at their 69 Beacon St. office to any visitors who are unable to see the them at this time.
