Working with DotBike, the Franklin Park Coalition got the Boston Parks Commission to make Franklin Park the only city park where bicycling is officially allowed! If you don’t have a bike, come to the Kite & Bike Festival in May to “rent” one for free. Boston Bikes brings all size bikes and helmets and sets up a bike rodeo so kids can improve their bicycling skills.

Bicycling is not allowed on ALL the paved paths in Franklin Park, just those wide enough to share with walkers. Look for stencils on the pavement to see where you can bike and where you should get off your bike to protect everyone’s safety. Please wear a helmet when you ride.

FPC leads bicycle tours with Discover Roxbury and keeps advocating for Hubway stations in and around the park.
