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 were thrilled to learn 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 half of our budget! The funds will make it possible to establish the groundwork for the park along with the installation of trees, and a bocce court. We are charged up! And well on our way.
Please help us reach our overall goal of $300,000 to install a memorial bench in memory of longstanding residents Arta Fritch & Boston Firefighter Scott Salman in addition to a wheelchair-accessible vegetable bed, a butterfly garden to enhance community involvement, add shrubs, planters, & pavers throughout the park, furnish with bistro tables & chairs and surround the park with wood & cable fencing. With your help, we can do it!
