Mayor Walsh had a bonus for Roslindale parents with small kids at today's Adams Park re-dedication: Work on renovating Fallon Field will begin next year, rather than in 2016 as originally planned.

Revamped Adams Park officially reopens; farmers' market returns

Marty Walsh cuts ribbon with help of neighborhood kids and giant golden scissors. Roslindale residents, city parks workers and elected officials gathered in Adams Park this morning to rededicate the park after a summer-long renovation project that features new walkways and benches - and a new irrigation system that means volunteers will no longer have to water plants by hand. After the speechifying and the ribbon cutting, people ambled about enjoying the return of the weekly farmers' market from the train-station parking lot.
