All the fields are in steady use. Gloucester Public School GHS practices and games for many sports utilize the fields year round, boys and girls. Flag Football (not GPS-GHS run) use the fields on the weekends. Community members walk and run to stay in shape. I wish it was used for recess and gym. Thank you to volunteers and donors who added amenities and care with the city for super green spaces city wide. Some of the good eggs that helped O’Maley are mentioned on the contributors sign of the Sandy Tucker Memorial Building, “Home of the Riverdale Rockets.”
The landscape design was well done when the school was built. Dramatic skies and expansive natural amphitheater are memorable bleachers.
Early vision proposal for Mill River area that became O’Maley is pretty accurate to the built out site (30 acre+ middle school site was estimated to cost $4,500,000 in 1971 which roughly equates to 28 million in 2017.) I’ll write more about the history of the O’Maley design and properties.
Before the game begins, geese are midfield, non-plussed at the action on the edge.
The geese moved away by game time.
Generations watched and cheered family players.
