Thirty volunteers from WeLoveU’s Boston Chapter came to beautify Franklin Square Park. The iconic park, located in the South End of Boston, opened in 1849. Many adore and often visit the two-acre park. For instance, local residents walk their dogs or chat around the fountain during their day. A picturesque scenery of fall, with leaves covering the ground, welcomed them.

“I cannot tell you how much it means to us that you did this this weekend. We love these squares and they are the biggest green spaces in the South End,” she said.
By the afternoon, the volunteers collected 175 bags of leaves and debris. The dead branches, stacked on top of each other, remained by the parks shoulder, for the city to collect. The goal to maintain the park’s beauty and cleanliness was definitely accomplished. The volunteer’s hard work and community support made it all possible.
