Boxford Common Athletic Fields, Middleton Road
Description: A transformative recreation project took place in the Town of Boxford, known as the Boxford Common. In 2007 the town acquired 75 acres of woodland in the center of town for $3.25 million. Following this purchase, a land use committee was formed and recommended constructing a recreational facility, including an artificial turf athletic field, on on a portion of the land, setting aside approximately 10 acres for future affordable housing and leaving the remaining land undisturbed for hiking, running, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding. The project will be funded by $2.5 million from the Community Preservation undesignated cash balance, $1.5 million from a CPA bond, and $500,000 from private donations to cover the artificial turf surface.
Scope of Work: For this project Fenagh provided soil inspections, including compaction and proctor testing. Learn more about Fenagh’s services here.
