Somerville Junction Park Expansion & Renovation Virtual Meeting, July 26

Mayor Katjana Ballantyne, Ward 5 City Councilor Beatriz Gómez Mouakad, and City staff invite you to a virtual community meeting to discuss the expansion and renovation of Junction Park, located off of Central Street near the Community Path extension.

This project will combine the existing 0.6-acre park with an adjacent 0.8-acre City-owned lot that had been used for parking, creating valuable new green space in the city and a resting place along the Community Path. Potential new amenities may include seating and plantings, water features, and adult fitness equipment. Support is provided in part by the Commonwealth’s Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities (PARC) Grant Program and City of Somerville Community Preservation Act funds.

At this meeting, City staff and consultants will discuss the design process to date, continue the define the spaces and materials within the park, and seek public feedback. Construction is expected to begin after the MBTA Green Line and Community Path extensions are completed later this year.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, July 26, at 6 p.m. Learn more and register to attend at somervillema.gov/junctionpark.
