The Southwest Corridor Park: A Community’s Response to a Highway
June 28, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
The Southwest Corridor Park was the result of protests about the creation of an eight lane highway running through Boston’s southwestern neighborhoods. Jamaica Plain’s residents played an important role in the stopping of I-95 and the efforts to create a park out of the razed land. This historical walking tour will follow the path of the park and discuss the changes in landscape to that section of Jamaica Plain and the communities that forced those changes to happen. Sponsored by the Jamaica Plain Historical Society, free and open to the public.
The Jamaica Plain News calendar is open to all local organizations and businesses.
