Simmons believes that athletics is an important part of the overall educational process, one which promotes leadership, collaboration and learning. We believe that quality athletic fields can encourage student involvement in athletic programs and that revitalized local fields build pride in one's community and local schools.
We have formed an exciting new partnership — the Allston-Brighton Friends of Daly Field — between Simmons College, the Boston Public Schools, including but not limited to Brighton High School, and the Allston-Brighton and surrounding communities to oversee and support the renovation of Daly Field, a public playing field in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston. Through this partnership with coaches, community members and Boston Public School officials we hope to transform Daly Field into a multi-purpose football, soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, softball and tennis recreation facility of which we can all be proud.
Our mission is to promote and improve athletics, health, and wellness for students at Simmons College, Boston Public Schools, and the Allston-Brighton and surrounding communities.
Over the past year, we spent a great deal of time talking with community leaders, legislators, and Department of Conservation and Recreation and other state officials about this exciting partnership and its many community benefits.
The Daly Field project will give Simmons College much needed fields for its top-ranked athletics programs as well as provide Brighton High School and the Allston-Brighton and surrounding communities with a state-of-the-art athletic facility. We believe in supporting community programs and see this as an ideal partnership. In advancing athletics and revitalizing Daly Field, this project will improve the community's access to recreational space and will create a focal point for increased community involvement.
