The Southwest Corridor Park: A Neighborhood’s Response to a Highway
June 12 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
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 both the stopping of the I-95 project 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 changes in the landscape. It will also talk about the communities that forced those changes to happen.
