Hi folks!

Just wanted to let you know that the Groundwork Somerville Green Team has officially begun their parks and playgrounds assessments! After finishing their own assessment tool, which includes people counts, access to healthy foods, and condition of equipment, they have begun assessing playgrounds, to be completed this year! In 2010, they will continue with the parks in Somerville. Stay tuned for information regarding our April presentation to the City of Somerville.
