Welcome to the place where parks and politics meet!
Congratulations to Mayor-election Marty Walsh! A 21st century mayor for Boston’s parks & open space. We can’t wait to work with you to make our city’s greenspace the best it can be.
The Boston Park Advocates is a network of park-connected groups from across the city working to elevate the status of open space among candidates and policy makers. As a park user, community gardener, athlete, artist, bicyclist, or fitness lover, we hope you will join in to make sure that the mayoral, city council, and even the upcoming governor’s races all pay attention to the importance of parks and open space in our city.
Get excited about how Marty will make a difference for Boston’s parks & open space. Read his Park Platform.

Thanks to support from park advocates, all candidates are aware of how much parks matter to voters in Boston. Please continue to be an activist for parks and open space. Remember Parks Count!
