Proposed Pocket Park for O'Connell Branch

The East Cambridge Open Space Trust has chosen the O'Connell Branch Library at 48 Sixth Street as the location for a new "Pocket Park". The Trust is a group of East Cambridge residents whose mission is to acquire and improve public open space in their neighborhood. This will be their first project since receiving a mitigation fund contributed by the developers of Cambridge Research Park.

The Trust sees the O'Connell Branch as a great asset to the neighborhood and recognizes that it serves as something of an informal community center. They are just starting the process of community outreach to inform and solicit advice from neighbors and interested residents. Here is a link to a set of pictures of the site on flickr if you would like to take a look at the proposed site.
