Kierstead and Tartikoff Park Improvements

Please come express your ideas to improve Kierstead and Tartikoff Parks and to create  greenway to connect up parks and playgrounds from the Lincoln Common to the Salemwood School.  This will occur in a Zoom Webinar that will take place on January 28th at 6PM.  You must pre-register for this Webinar.


Kierstead and Tartikoff Parks, just off Eastern Avenue by the Charles Daniel Apartments, provide central and visible locations for play and sports to neighbors and all Malden residents. People view games happening at Kierstead's ball diamond as they drive by and youth flock to Tartikoff's skate park. On the other hand, the playground at Lincoln Common gets much more use than Kierstead's playground and both parks have large areas that receive little if any use.  Ward 7 Councillor's Anderson, Councillor Winslow and the Ward 7 Association will be hosting a series of meetings to gather community input for a Master Plan to improve these parks to make them more useful and attractive. The overall goal will be to assess the current use and state of repair of the existing parks and hold community forums to better understand what residents like about these parks and what needs to be updated or improved.

The Master Plan process will also consider the creation of a greenway along Willow Street to link Lincoln Common and Tartikoff and Kierstead Park with the Northern Strand bike path, Roosevelt Park and Salemwood School.
