The mission of the Friends of Frieda Garcia ParkĀ is to care for the park and to provide programming that welcomes children and residents of the rich, diverse backgrounds of Boston’s neighborhoods.

Frieda Garcia

Frieda Garcia Park was built in honor of Frieda Garcia, a renowned community activist recognized for her decades of leadership in the South End and Roxbury.

Community Built

Featuring equipment for active, social, and self-directed play, the park serves as a significant buffer against the adjacent lanes of the Massachusetts Turnpike. John Hancock Financial covered the costs of the development of the park, and donated it to the City upon completion.
