Join us for an online public workshop for the Franklin Park Action Plan, kicking off a month of summertime engagement: Tuesday, July 14th at 12:00 pm or 6:30 pm.
Working with the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, and in close collaboration with the local community, the core design team of Reed Hilderbrand, Agency Landscape and Planning, and MASS Design Group, are producing a strategic vision to invest in Franklin Park. At this second public workshop, online this time, attendees will learn about the park’s history, ecology, communities, and connections and share their feedback.
And a note on the new name: This spring Franklin Park — a place of celebration, exploration, and play — reemerged with an expanded purpose.
The park nurtured our health and well-being, providing a spacious place to stretch our legs, mix with our community at a safe distance, or spend a quiet moment at a time when so many other shared spaces are off-limits. Its grounds also served as a venue and meeting place, where thousands of citizens gathered to voice their support for Black lives, justice, and change. As we move forward, we want to acknowledge a small, but meaningful change: the Franklin Park Master Plan will now be called the Franklin Park Action Plan.
