New, 2 comments

DOWNTOWN BOSTON—Relax, no one's tossing tons of sand on the Common: "Now Boston 2024 has found its alternative. It wants to put beach volleyball at Squantum Point Park in Quincy. Boston 2024 announced the plan Wednesday at the site, located along Boston Harbor. The area would receive expanded parking, access to a ferry terminal, and more in anticipation of the games, according to a news release." [Boston.com]
