Brownfields Into Beaches
"The newest park on the waterfront is a playful two acres of landscape design by Claude Cormier, with candy-striped hunks of granite and small, sugar-pile hills of grass – but that conceptual play is a bit over the head of a 19-month-old. I liked it a lot, and surprisingly, so did he: those rocks and hills are great to climb and tumble on, and the large artificial beach, with its wispy white sand imported from Ohio, is one serious sandbox.
Throw in the sights of the lake (boat! seagull!) and you have a winning park experience for almost anybody.
The sad thing was, we had the place to ourselves."
