Please join Mayor Curtatone and Ward One Alderman Matt McLaughlin for a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 22, to celebrate the completion of the Otis Playground renovation and its much anticipated renaming as Cremin Playground, in honor of Deanna Cremin, a wonderful Somerville teen who was a positive inspiration for all.


Please join with your neighbors and Cremin family and friends for the celebration at the corner of Otis and Dane Streets, on Saturday morning, October 22, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.


The new playground design was inspired by the community, and developed by an imaginative team of landscape architects and engineers at CBA Landscape Architects. The features include new play structures, several musical instruments, fun-loving murals, a water spray area, a large dish swing, and café tables. Improved safety features include new lighting, security cameras, and new gates. The playground also includes expanded green spaces, permeable surfacing throughout to help remediate stormwater runoff, new sidewalks, and street trees. This City of Somerville project was completed in partnership and with the support of MassDot.

“We lost someone special when we lost Deanna Cremin,” said Mayor Curtatone. “This park will honor her caring, fun-loving spirit, and with the renovation of the playground, our children and families will be now able to enjoy a space dedicated to Deanna’s memory and legacy.”
