Moveable Furniture’ to be Installed at Kenney Park



Beginning on Friday, Aug. 21, the City will pilot a “moveable furniture” project in Kenney Park in Davis Sq. The park, which was recently renovated, will now include additional, brightly colored café tables and chairs to enhance the public plaza. Recent planning studies and observations of open space have shown that comfort plays a large role in whether residents remain in and enjoy public places, and moveable furniture is one way to allow park-goers to move and arrange seating as desired. During the pilot program, the City will study how the use of the space before and after the installation of the moveable furniture changes to determine whether to install moveable furniture in other parks across the City.


The furniture will be clearly marked and includes theft prevention materials. We encourage residents to report any furniture that is lost or damaged to 311.
