ABOUT THE PARK
Beacon Hill Playground, adjacent to Beacon Hill Elementary School, features ADA-accessible basketball hoops, a children's play area, picnic tables, accessible restrooms, a soccer and softball field, accessible tennis courts and an accessible wading pool.Acreage: 3
M.H. Young, who developed a street car line to Beacon Hill in 1895, suggested the name for the hill--and thus the playground--after Beacon Hill in his native Boston, Massachusetts. (Boston's Beacon Hill is known as the site of the protest skirmish that followed the Boston Tea Party. After the Tea Party, and the defeat of the Redcoats at Lexington and Concord, the siege of Boston formally started the Revolutionary War in 1776.)
