Virtual Community Meeting to Discuss a New Park at 217 Somerville Ave., August 2

Mayor Katjana Ballantyne and Ward 2 Councilor J.T. Scott invite you to a virtual community meeting about a new park planned for 217 Somerville Ave.

The City is transforming the site, currently a vacant lot at the corner of Somerville Avenue and Rossmore Street, into a pocket park, which will add approximately .15 acres to Somerville’s open space network. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2024, and the park is expected to open in the spring of 2025.

Join this meeting to learn more about potential design elements and share ideas for the park. This is the first of several meetings that will take place in the coming months to gather input from the community.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, August 2, at 6 p.m. on Zoom. To learn more and attend, go to
