Charlesgate Park Shines Emerald Green This Winter

Head to Charlesgate Park at the Commonwealth Avenue Mall every evening now through March 31 to enjoy the newly-lit emerald green trees, shining a spotlight on our ongoing Charlesgate Park Revitalization Project!

An Opportunity to Restore Franklin Park

A once-in-lifetime opportunity: the right community services and needed housing in the right location, and an opportunity to restore parkland to Franklin Park, a high growth area in a high-needs community.
