Brookline Youth Soccer Association
New Pavilion Dedication at Moore Park

On September 19, 1999, a new Pavilion located next to the pool was dedicated to the children of Brookline. The 1999 season was the first at Moore Park for the Brookline Youth Soccer Association, and the pavilion was erected mainly to serve as a concession area for the soccer program.

On hand for the festivities were City Councilman Michael Diven, CitiParks Director of Special Events Mike Radley, and Director of General Services Dale Perrett. In addition, many of the city laborers who built the structure were present.

BYSA President Mary McNulty applauded everyone who contributed in making the pavilion possible, then surrendered the podium to the city dignitaries. This is the first in a long line of improvements scheduled for Moore Park, including expanded parking and possibly enlarging the lower field area with ten acres of landfill from ongoing Port Authority construction. This would provide enough new space for a new regulation size soccer field.

After the dedication, a large BYSA cake was shared with the crowd on hand, and afterwards it was time for soccer as usual. The new pavilion/concession stand will serve the parents and children of the Brookline community for years to come.
