Located on Columbus Avenue at the intersection of West Canton and Appleton Streets, Crite Square honors an acclaimed artist and South End resident, Allan Rohan Crite, whose work captured the lifeblood of the local African-American community during the 1930’s.
Over the years, Crite Park has fallen into disrepair. Thus, the Ellis Neighborhood Association and area neighbors established a mission to revitalize the park and are pursuing a timeline to transform Crite Park into an active neighborhood park.
Our mission is multi-faceted:
•To beautify the space into a visually open, safe, and tranquil environment
•To rejuvenate and expand the park for community events and social gathering supporting our diverse neighborhood culture
•To serve as a South End landmark and a tribute to a Boston cultural and artistic icon Allan Rohan Crite.
Our fact sheet highlights the key points of the project.
