In January of this year, Boston Parks completed the community outreach for the park design portion of the Malcolm X Park project.  Please see the presentation that has been posted to the project website.

As we discussed in the community meetings, an additional portion of the Malcolm X Park project consists of interpretive signage panels, recognition of community leaders and historical figures, and artwork in the park.  

Boston Parks are excited to share that we are launching the history and art portions of the project. Please share your thoughts below

* 5. Murals in the park: In conjunction with the Malcolm X Park Improvement Project, the Boston Parks Department is collaborating with the Boston Arts Commission to design and create murals within the park. The murals initiative will likely follow a similar timeline as the park refurbishment effort, yet notably, it is a separate process managed by the Arts Commission and the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture. As such, we are still interested in receiving community input on the themes for potential murals. Please use the space below to share your thoughts about mural themes at Malcolm X Park. All of your thoughts and ideas will be passed along to the selected artists.
