Barton Road now boasts Wellesley’s most colorful playground

20131206-110251.jpgThe Barton Road housing complex in Wellesley this past week celebrated the opening of a spectacular 10,000 sq. ft. playground privately funded by the Play 2 Dream Foundation started by Wellesley’s Kathy Welsh. The sprawling playground, featuring a fish-shaped bridge and giant colored buckyball-like climbing structures, includes a section for kids ages 2-5 and 5-12. A Dec. 1 ceremony featured appearances by politicians and Boston Celtics assistant coach Walter McCarty, plus a lot of parents and kids. (Note: When I swung by Friday AM the playground was closed due to the surface being wet.)
