A membership organization open to all, the Friends was founded in 1970 by concerned citizens. It works closely with the Boston Parks Department to protect and enhance Boston’s three historic parks: the Boston Common, the Public Garden and the Commonwealth Avenue Mall. For more than four decades, the Friends has funded the expert care of trees and plantings, the maintenance and restoration of sculptures and fountains, and major improvement projects like the Brewer Fountain Plaza renovation. It has been a staunch advocate to protect the parks from misuse and encroachment. This has all been accomplished thanks to the support of the members.
