An “Open Streets” day will be coming to JP on Sunday, July 15 as part of “Circle the City.” Streets connecting Franklin Park to Jamaica Pond will be closed, encouraging residents to reconnect with their parks this summer and bringing sports, food, and other outdoor activities to the area!
We’ve posted all the photos from last month’s Parkman Drive day at our Flickr page. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, and to all the organizations that donated time and resources to the event. It was a great day!
