Crews Cleaning Up Dewey Square After Occupy Boston Eviction

BOSTON (CBS) - The cleanup continued Sunday at the site of the former Occupy Boston encampment at Dewey Square.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Kim Tunnicliffe reports.


If all goes according to plan, Dewey Square Park will be reopened sometime this week.

The head of the Greenway Conservancy, Nancy Renin, said crews are hard at work restoring the park to the way it was before occupiers took over with their tent city.

Crews are re-aerating the soil, re-sodding the area and repairing the irrigation system. They've already planted new shrubs and flowers at the site.

"It feels very good for this chapter of Occupy Boston to come to a peaceful end and for the Greenway Conservancy to be able to open it before the end of this week," said Renin.

Protesters had been at Dewey Square for two months until Saturday, when Boston police officers arrested 46 people while clearing out the site.
