Athletics and Outdoor Learning

SPARK will invest $3.5 million in athletics and outdoor learning.

Located on the tribal homelands of the Massachusett Nation, Park's pastoral campus is our largest classroom. In the summer of 2022, Park will elevate athletics facilities for our student athletes, optimizing our outdoor facilities while preserving the natural beauty of our campus. We will build a state-of-the-art turf field, encompassing the current Faulkner Field and Goddard Field, to prepare our students for competition at the secondary school level where turf is the norm, and extend our outdoor field access – previously limited by weather and field conditions – for PE, athletics, and recess.

Open for the 2022-23 school year

Building upon the introduction of indoor adventure equipment in 2019, a new outdoor ropes course incorporating high and low elements will be open for the start of the 2022-23 school year. The ropes course will challenge students to work independently and collaboratively, to problem-solve and take healthy risks – a workout for the brain and the body.
