Mary Cummings Park
Mary Cummings Parks is an over-two hundred acre public park which was given in trust so that the City of Boston would keep the land "forever open as a public pleasure ground". This little-known park offers rare open meadows, deep forests, extensive wetlands, and a network of trails for public enjoyment. See more park photos.

This 2012 Vision document represents the concerted effort of a small number of people working over many months gathering as much as possible to create a broad framework for Mary Cummings Park moving forward. We are very proud of the result, but the process is not complete until we have heard from you. So, please let us know what you think and what we could improve and how you might like to help.
Please help us move forward!! Friends of Mary Cummings Park Inc is a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
