The historic William E. Carter Playground, owned by the City of Boston, was officially re-opened by Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh and Northeastern President Joseph E. Aoun in early 2019. Northeastern, through an agreement with the City of Boston, committed $108 million to renovations and maintenance of the 6.5-acre state-of-the-art park.
