Adams Park Boston

Adams Park

Landscape Rehabilitation + Adaptive Reuse

In the heart of Roslindale, Adams Park is the central civic open space for this neighborhood of Boston. The park serves as the front door to the municipal library, businesses, and the public realm.  

KZLA developed a landscape approach for this beloved open space to accommodate daily use, the extremely popular farmer’s market, and special events such as the annual Easter egg hunt, holiday tree lighting, and movies on the lawn. Protection of the existing tree canopy was paramount to the success of this project, as was creating a variety of outdoor spaces for social interaction.
