A standoff over who is responsible for what has slowed the finish of East Boston's Memorial Park -- what we grew up calling "The Stadium" -- according to today's Globe. Contractor Barletta Engineering has been slow to finish its work, but apparently some of the company's employees have been cutting grass and doing some other jobs there in recent days.
While on the subject of Eastie's parks, a reader emailed to ask about the work being done on the wading pool at the Bremen Street Park. She heard jackhammers and noted that, for a while last week, fencing was put up around the perimeter. Why was the work on the pool taking so long? Was the original construction, she wondered, flawed in some way? Does anyone know the story?
