The Boston Guardian reports that parents worried about their little kids getting burned by climbing up on that solar-heated Myrtle the Turtle statue they never asked for in the center of the Myrtle Street playground for have reached a compromise with the city Parks Department:
The statue, which the Beacon Hill Garden Club sternly refused to move off Myrtle Street because what's the point of a turtle named Myrtle if not on the eponymous street, will be moved to a section of the playground that already is shaded by trees - rather than covered by some sort of shelter that would take up even more room in the small playground. Garden Club honchos said they agreed to the move only after sculptor Nancy Schon - yes, of Make Way for Ducklings statue fame - agreed to the move, which she did.
