Friends of Daly Field

Partnering for the Community

Simmons College and the other Friends of Daly Field joined forces because of a shared recognition of the many ways this restoration project will benefit the community. The collective mission is focused on:

  • Fostering an innovative public-private partnership
  • Restoring public parkland to serve the needs of Boston’s public school children, their families and the community
  • Returning the Brighton High School athletes to their former home field, deemed unsafe for inter-scholastic play for over 20 years
  • Providing state-of-the-art athletic facilities for Brighton High School, the Allston-Brighton Little League, the Allston-Brighton Community, Simmons College and the public
  • Enhancing landscaping and providing storm water management to a neglected area on the banks of the Charles River
