BOSTON STRONG NEWS – Martin Richard Foundation Martin’s Park Opening Festival of Celebration
Boston, MA: Bill, Denise, Henry and Jane Richard report – Two years ago, surrounded by your love and support, we broke ground on Martin’s Park. Now, we hope that you join us as Martin’s Park officially opens to the public on June 15, 2019!
Adjacent to the Boston Children’s Museum on the Smith Family Waterfront in the Seaport District, Boston Parks and Recreation Department has created an inclusive park and play space that is the first of its kind in the heart of our city. Its location and design are bound to provide enjoyment to generations of Boston’s children, families and visitors.
Growing up in Dorchester, Martin spent much of his time playing with Henry, Jane and their friends at many of the fields and playgrounds throughout the city. Martin’s Park will be a symbol of Martin’s welcoming, inclusive nature as well as his idea of an ideal park. This unique, public, outdoor space will ensure that Martin’s legacy remains a vibrant and positive influence for future generations. We hope that Martin’s Park brings hours of joy to children and is counted on their list of favorite parks.
Martin’s Park would not be possible without the unwavering support of our donors, volunteers and city officials – we are forever grateful to your commitment and dedication to building a more kind, just, and inclusive community.
With peace and gratitude.
