When you were a kid, there was nothing better than spending a summer day outside; swinging on swings and playing games with friends. Sadly, one day we all became adults and this past time faded into a sweet memory. Thankfully, some innovative people in Bean Town decided to convert some empty space in South Boston into what is basically an adult playground.
The Lawn on D opened a few years ago with a very cool installation called “Swing Time” where adults can swing on swings of various sizes. The best part? They glow and light up at night! Not only can you swing, but you can do it with a craft beer in one hand and a food truck taco in the other.
Swings occupied? Pass the time with numerous games and open space. Bocce, corn hole, giant Jenga and ping pong all dominate the lawn. Last 4th of July we played countless rounds of corn hole while listening to local bands.
Day drinking, lawn games, hot dogs and live music…is there any combination more American?
