Babson College last week formally dedicated Wellesley’s newest spectacular outdoor space: Barefoot Park, which is a newly landscaped area in the upper quad on the Babson Campus.
The park honors ex-Babson president Brian Barefoot (2001-2008), who had the foresight to have such a park-friendly name. No offense, but a park named after current Babson president Leonard Schlesinger just wouldn’t have the same ring to it.
And if you’re thinking Barefoot Park sounds familiar, you’re probably thinking of the Neil Simon play converted into a 1967 movie starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.
