Barnard Place Park is a volunteer, non-profit organization that came together when a group of Barnard Place residents decided to raise our voice about how we live in our community. With a considerable amount of hard work and dedication, we successfully purchased a vacant parcel of land, previously owned by the City of Boston, to save it from development and retain its open space for everyone to enjoy.
Over the course of several months in 2019, we developed the Barnard Place Park conceptual designs with support from COGdesign (Community Outreach Group for Landscape Design), a nonprofit group that gives back tirelessly to communities across Massachusetts by donating the designs required to apply for Community Preservation funding.
In March of 2020, we learned Barnard Place Park had been selected by the City of Boston’s Community Preservation Committee to receive a $150,000 grant towards completion of the park. We are beyond grateful that the CPA is providing more than half our budget to build the park, install a memorial bench in memory of longstanding residents Boston Firefighter Scott Salman & Arta Fritch, a recreational bocce court, add a wheelchair-accessible vegetable bed, a butterfly garden to enhance community involvement, along with shrubs, planters, & pavers throughout the park, furnish with bistro tables & chairs and surround the park with wood & wire fencing. We are charged up! And well on our way.
Please join our community to raise the additional funds needed to construct this beautiful, South Boston public park. With your help we can do it and all enjoy it! Your donation is 100% tax-deductible. If your company offers a matching gift program, please consider asking them to match your donation.
