Work is now getting underway on a new park in Boston's Seaport district.

It's designed to be accessible to almost all children. It's called Martin's Park in honor of 8-year-old Martin Richard, who was the youngest person killed in the Boston marathon bombings.

WBUR's Fred Thys reported on Wednesday's groundbreaking.
