Overview of Southwest Corridor Park Action Plan Public Listening Session 7/26/2023
At this virtual public meeting, the project team will present the initial goals and scope of work for the Southwest Corridor Park Action Plan. The Southwest Corridor Park is a 52-acre, 4-mile corridor running from Back Bay Station to Forest Hills Station that is both a greenway facilitating access to eight transit stations and an important recreational facility with community gardens, basketball and tennis courts, a skate park, and playgrounds. Opened in 1987-1990, the park is due for renewed attention and investment. DCR seeks public input to create a vision for both short- and long-term investments that renovate and modernize the park while strengthening and supporting the communities it serves.
The public will be invited to ask questions and provide feedback on the presentation, using the Q&A functionality that will be available through the virtual participation platform. After the meeting, the presentation will be available for viewing at https://www.mass.gov/dcr/past-public-meetings. DCR encourages the public to share additional feedback, with a deadline for receipt of comments by DCR of August 16th, 2023 (extended to 8/23/2023). Comments may be submitted online at http://www.mass.gov/dcr/public-comment. Please note that the content of comments you submit to DCR, along with your name, town, and zip code, will be posted on DCR's website. Additional contact information required when commenting, notably email address, will only be used for outreach on future updates on the subject project or property.
If you have agency-related questions or concerns or would like to be added to an email list to receive DCR general or project-specific announcements, please email Mass.Parks@mass.gov or call 617-626-4973.
