Beginning on Monday, April 15, 2024, and continuing through Sunday, June 30, 2024, the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) will close Ventura Softball Field at Lower Mills VFW Memorial Post Park in Dorchester to accommodate $75,000 of work DCR is investing to improve the field’s outfield, infield, team dugouts, and spectator seating. The work will also increase universal access. Safety fencing will be erected around the work area. DCR has coordinated with permit holders to relocate their teams to nearby fields. Additionally, the playground at the park will be closed during working hours from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday to ensure public safety, as this is the only available construction access point to the field. The public can use the nearby playground at Dorchester Park, 2216 Dorchester Ave, Boston, MA as an alternative, for the duration of work. If no active construction is occurring on a given day, the playground will open for use.
