Mayor Thomas M. Menino has announced that two new locations in Boston’s neighborhood park system are now WiFi accessible. The two latest facilities to receive WiFi service are Ronan Park and Town Field, both in Dorchester.
With the addition of these two parks, there are now seven Boston Parks and Recreation Department properties with the technology on-site for visitors and residents to access the Internet. The five locations where WiFi has been installed previously are Boston Common, Statler Park in Park Square, Christopher Columbus Park in the North End, and the clubhouses at George Wright Golf Course in Hyde Park and William Devine Golf Course in Dorchester.
WiFi access on Boston Parks Department property is part of Mayor Menino’s initiative to make access to the Internet free and available to people of all ages and incomes in the city wherever possible. City parks are benefiting from Mayor Menino’s ongoing effort to increase the network infrastructure in the city.
Ronan Park and Town Field are connected to the City's BoNET system and provide free WiFi access by entering “City of Boston WiFi" on a computer or handheld device when in the park.
