Daly Field in Brighton is not our land

Daly Field is not the jewel of the state’s public park system. It is patchy and weedy. Wan goal posts seem set to keel over. Geese have their way with the place.

The 8.6 acres along the Charles in Brighton are fairly ugly. But not as ugly as the slippery way this public land has been essentially turned over to a private institution. That has been a study in the lameness of laws protecting our shared open spaces.
