Cronin Park
Jeremiah J. Cronin Park is a roughly 1 acre park in the Arlington Neighborhood. The park is across from the Tarbox School at the intersection of Alder and Juniper Streets. Cronin Park is 100 years old in 2010 and the Tarbox School is even older - we're so pleased to be celebrating the Arlington Neighborhood with this improvement.

About the Renovation and Funding

In 2009 the City received funding to renovate this park through the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs P.A.R.C. funding. In September 2009, the City received bids for the construction of the park to begin. The low-bidder was Quirk Construction who also built the Kennedy Community Park in 2007. The renovation will include a large playground, lawn and landscaping improvements, and community garden and outdoor classroom space. The students of the Tarbox helped Groundwork Lawrence and the Landscape Architect, Steve Cosmos of Cosmos Associates, decide what type of elements they wanted.

The Ribbon Cutting was June 17, 2010.
