I Heart Chuckie Harris

This morning our destination was Chuckie Harris Park in east of east Somerville.  My friend put it right when she said it sounded like a B-list movie.  It's wedged between a few abandoned buildings and a spare vacant lot.  In the best kind of way.  The access street was closed for construction (of course) so the traffic cop told me to go ahead and go down the one way street the wrong way to get there.  If I needed any more convincing that Somerville is the new Brooklyn, this park sealed the deal.  It was pretty much awesome.  Innovative and open and simple.  
So next time you are near the Mystic River...

Have a great weekend.  :)


  1. So much fun! I need to go there with you.

  2. I love how it appears to be abandoned while you were there. Somehow further confirms the new hipness of it--yet to be discovered.
    I read an interview with the folks that made it. Inspiring to have actual parents conceiving of these playgrounds. Reminds me of how the animals on the new greenway carousel were suggested by local school kids.
