Franklin Street Park
Franklin Street Park is a house-lot sized park located in the Riverside neighborhood. In 2003 the Cambridge Community Development Department renovated the park with the goal of transforming what had been an unused and uninviting area paved with concrete into a small urban oasis in a densely populated neighborhood.
Franklin Park received an "Editor's Choice" award from the magazine "Landscape Architecture", the national publication of the American Society of Landscape Architects. The magazine included a detailed write up in the July 2004 edition, with a series of park photos. See the first page of this article at: http://www.asla.org/lamag/lam04/july/EditorsChoice.html.
