About the Friends

The Friends of the Myrtle Street Playground is a group of neighborhood parents whose children use and love the playground. We cherish this special play space that is our back yard and the friendships and memories made there. The Friends’ mission is to work with the City of Boston as caretakers of the playground, provide free summer programming and seasonal events, maintain the park’s menagerie of toys, and act as stewards of the playground’s facilities.

The Friends are grateful to Bright Horizons, our generous summer programming co-sponsor.
