Boys and Girls Club Playground

An award in the amount of $359,689 has been approved by the City Council for the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holyoke for a two-phase rehabilitation of the playground located at 70 Nick Cosmos Way.

The funds will provide for the refurbishment of basketball courts, the installation of a new play facility and the installation of green infrastructure and other related capital improvements. The Club will resurface the basketball court area, install two new basketball hoops, bleachers, scoreboard, and improve the lighting and painting of the court. They will repurpose two underutilized half-basketball courts into an open space and a new playground. The park/playground will remain open to the public when not in use by the Club. The Boys and Girls Club has 1,359 registered members from the City of Holyoke and is proud to work with nearly 75% of the youth population, demonstrating a commitment to  low-income youth and families.
