Symphony Park Groundbreaking 10/2 – community note


Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and Ward 1 Alderman Matthew McLaughlin invite all residents to the groundbreaking
ceremony for the new Symphony Park on Thursday, October 2 at 3:30 p.m. Located at the corner of Pearl and Florence Streets in East Somerville, the design of the park is the result of a series of community meetings during which residents expressed a desire for amenities for multigenerational users. The currently vacant lot will be transformed into a quiet neighborhood space with seating in a garden setting, a small water feature, accessible community gardens and a small community performance space. The park is funded in part by a Massachusetts PARC grant granted by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs and by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

You can view the final design and presentation on the City’s web page:

Construction is scheduled to begin in October 2014, and extend through summer 2015. If you have questions or comments, please contact Senior Planner Luisa Oliveira at 617-625-6600 ext. 2529, or e-mail
