Save-the-date: The ever popular Swingin’ in the Fens series will resume in 2013 with a concert at Ramler Park on July 17th (rain date July 24th). We hope to see you then!
The Dorothy & David Ramler Park is one of the jewels of the Fenway neighborhood. Located on Peterborough Street, this half-acre City of Boston park is open to the public during daylight hours. The site used to be a parking lot until neighborhood activists, led by FCA board member Fredericka Veikley, galvanized the public and private sectors to turn the Ramler Family’s gift of land into a public park. Now it serves as a gorgeous respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, complete with fountain, benches, arbors, and an amazing variety of plants and flowers.
Each summer Ramler Park is host to a very popular concert series. But you needn’t wait for the concerts to enjoy this award winning park. Throughout the spring and summer, the Friends of Ramler Park organize volunteers from the neighborhood to meet and maintain the gardens, and they raise funds to keep Ramler Park one of Boston’s most beautiful public spaces. If you are interested in joining the Friends of Ramler Park, email Fredericka at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: The Friends of Ramler Park now have a website! Please see here for more details on the park.
