Tutoring Plus of Cambridge started this petition to City of Cambridge and

We are middle school students that go to Tutoring Plus, an afterschool program in Cambridge. We want to update Russell Field Playground (Thomas J. O'Callaghan Playground) because right now, it feels like it’s made only for really young kids. It is old and it needs to be improved. We think it would be important to update Russell Field Playground because a lot of people come there and we think it could use some upgrading.

We like the pool and the fields, because the turf is good and there’s a lot of room to play. But the slide is small and the playground doesn’t have anything special. It has been there since some of us were born, and it only has standard things that you can find at any playground, like one monkey bar, a really small slide, and some sand. It should have a basketball court for everyone to play. Adding new structures like different kinds of monkey bars or a rock climbing wall, like they have on the playground at 364 Rindge Ave, would be nice. Some playgrounds, like at Graham & Parks, have a basket swing or a viking swing. We haven’t seen those at other parks, and they are cool. The current playground should be removed to make space for a bigger and better playground that everyone can go to.

Please sign our petition!

Sincerely, the middle school students at Tutoring Plus
