Ruiz Park

The newest Chelsea park – the John Ruiz Park on Washington Avenue – is preparing to open in another few weeks, but already a flat statue of the Quiet Man has been placed in the park. The rendering of the former heavyweight champion from Chelsea features him as he looked during his champion days. In addition, the park will feature play equipment, places to sit and a water feature. City Manager Jay Ash said it is just another effort to provide more open space in the City. It is the crown jewel of the overall Washington Avenue redevelopment project that has been ongoing for the last two years.
