Frieda Garcia Park
Frieda Garcia Park is a 12,000-square-foot park and playground created for Boston’s families. It was built in honor of Frieda Garcia, a renowned community activist recognized for her decades of leadership in the South End and Roxbury. Designed by Halvorson Design Partnership in consultation with the community, this urban oasis features custom-designed play equipment and lively art for youth of all ages. The area provides a safe outdoor play space for local children while also serving as a calm resting spot for residents and visitors alike. John Hancock Financial covered the costs of the development of the park, and donated it to the City upon completion. An enclosure on the back of the park incorporates a colorful glazed masonry wall with an exuberant two-part mosaic mural by renowned artist Lisa Houck.
