Novartis park by MIT open during weekend

Last weekend, the Novartis Institute for Biomedical Research (NIBR) opened their park to the public, according to Jeffrey Lockwood, NIBR global communications director, in an email to The Tech.

The park provides a direct route between several student living groups (Zeta Psi, the Women’s Independent Living Group, and Random Hall) and the east side of campus.

The park is now accessible 9 a.m.–5 p.m. on weekends, according to Lockwood. Previously, the courtyard had been closed at different times “due to regular maintenance, and snow and ice conditions."
