Giving Wellesley Glowgolf a whirl

A couple of young Wellesley Country Club caddies went undercover on Wednesday to test out the new competition: Glowgolf in Linden Square.

Perrin Park playground update

An old playground structure, deemed unsafe by the Wellesley Department of Public Works, was removed from Perrin Park during the fall of 2012. That set in motion an effort to replace it with new gear — funded in part by park neighbors/users — and now some are wondering why that equipment isn’t in place yet […]
