Welcome to the Franklin Park Coalition
The Franklin Park Coalition (FPC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to involving the community to work, play, & engage in Franklin Park, Boston’s largest green space. Designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted in the late 1800s, Franklin Park serves as an urban oasis to the surrounding neighborhoods and the City of Boston.
The Franklin Park Coalition held its 2021 Annual Meeting and elected a new slate of board members. After the meeting Secretary of Health and Human Services for the Commonwealth joined us to answer questions about the new low-threshold housing “cottages” installed on the Shattuck campus. You can listen to the meeting with Secretary Sudders if you missed it.
Save the Date: the Franklin Park Kite & Bike Festival will be back this spring! Mark you calendars for May 14, 2022 – always the Saturday after Mother’s Day.
