The mom of an eight-yr-previous boy killed within the Boston Marathon bombing says she’s happy that work is about to start on a park named after her son.
Martin Richard was the youngest of three individuals killed when two bombs exploded close to the marathon end line on April 15, 2013.
Denise Richard says her son liked parks. She tells The Related Press that her household is “very excited to see this development start and take form.”
Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, Democratic Boston Mayor Martin Walsh and others will be a part of the Richard household Wednesday for a groundbreaking ceremony.
Martin’s Park might be constructed on the South Boston waterfront, close to the Boston Youngsters’s Museum.
