Braintree: Groundbreaking For Petersen Pool Complex

Braintree High School was the site of a Wednesday afternoon groundbreaking for the August Petersen Pool and Rink Complex. 

Mayor Joseph Sullivan tells WATD News that the project came to be with a decades old donation. 


Although this complex is being privately developed, Sullivan says that the school department will be very involved in how it is run. 


The facility is expected to be complete by Fall of 2019.
