Watertown Recreation Director Peter Centola provided the following information:
As a follow-up to the Filippello Park (Grove) renovation update, which was distributed on July 27, I would like to provide more specific instructions for parking beginning Monday, Aug. 6.
The entryway to Filippello Park (Grove) will be closed beginning Aug. 6 due to the renovation of this area. Renovation will continue until approximately mid-November.
Through the generosity of the Mount Auburn Cemetery and Mount Auburn Hospital, the adjacent parking lot on Grove Street will be available to the users of the facility according to the following schedule:
Monday through Friday: 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
(The parking lot is in the upper right corner of the map below. It is located just north of the park entrance on Grove Street.)
A temporary pathway will be created in the back left corner of the parking lot to connect the parking lot to the fields for access to the Filippello facility.
There will be signage installed soon directing park users to the appropriate location.
Our expectation is that all users of the facility will strictly follow all rules and regulations during their stay at the facility and while parking in the lot and be respectful of the primary users of the parking lot.
Please feel free to reach out to the recreation department at 617-972-6494 or firstname.lastname@example.org for concerns, questions or comments.
