CSS is currently responsible for the design of a new recreational and public gathering space at the abandoned bus shelter adjacent to the historic Salem Street Burying Ground in Medford Square. This significant project presents an opportunity to create a central and vibrant plaza for passive recreation, cultural activities, and a gathering space for public events.

The plaza will include signage and wayfinding to link to other open space resources along the Mystic River in addition to walking and biking routes that connect sites of cultural and historic interest throughout the city. Other amenities will include improved lighting, a public performance ‘stage,’ exercise and bicycle amenities, rain gardens and street trees, music and play elements, as well as permanent and movable seating options.
