All North End Edition! A Dog Park Finally; Parents Freaked Out

We're taking a summer Friday. See you bright and surly Monday morning!

NORTH END—Christopher Columbus Park has some issues that are making parents understandably skittish: "More troubling were puddles that appeared to be urine, and a razor blade and blood inside the play structure. The Boston Parks and Recreation Department power-washed the structure and removed the sand that appeared to contain urine, and the Friends of Christopher Columbus Park bought 12 tons of new sand to replace it. " []
NORTH END—Boston Parks and Rec Commissioner Antonia Pollak and the North End/Waterfront Residents’ Association have talked about fixing what's become a noxious problem in the neighborhood's parks. "The discussion quickly focused on the creation of at least one dog park in the North End/Waterfront community. Commissioner Pollak said the city is looking to work with organized groups of residents and abutters." []
