South End Community Garden Transfer
Creating new community gardens
Prior to 2014, the South End/Lower Roxbury Open Space Land Trust owned and maintained a wide variety of open spaces in the South End. These areas are key contributors to the neighborhoods' comfortable and family-friendly environment. Last year, the BRA facilitated the transfer of parks from the SELROST to the Boston Natural Areas Network so they could take over ownership responsibilities. This process was significantly improved by the BRA's confirmatory order of taking abilities.
