Transportation Secretary James Aloisi, Jr. joined Mayor Thomas M. Menino today as Mayor Menino announced a design team has been selected to renovate Mary Soo Hoo Park, also known as Chinatown Gateway Park.

Stephen Stimson Associates was awarded a $50,000 design services contract to update the park’s amenities and play space while also visually and physically connecting the site to the adjacent Chinatown Park of the Rose Kennedy Greenway and the Chinatown Gate.

The Turnpike Authority, which owns the land, committed $160,000 toward the cost of the renovations.  The money comes from the existing mitigation fund created as a result of the Central Artery/Tunnel project.  Those funds must be used for mitigation projects in the City as a result of the South Boston bus station construction and impact on local parks. 

Construction is expected to start in summer 2010.  Learn more.
