Kerouac Park Needs Your Help

kpark_rendering

Today, the City launched a crowdfunding campaign to renew Kerouac Park.

Can we count on your support?

Kerouac Park is in the heart of Downtown by Bridge Street and the Eastern Canal. Thirty years ago the City dedicated the Jack Kerouac Commemorative. Today, the park is a little rough around the edges.

Fortunately, MassDevelopment has a new grant program to renew places like Kerouac Park. It’s simple. When we raise $25,000 from donations big and small, MassDevelopment will double our fundraising. We would have $50,000 to invest into this important park.

Can you pitch in $25 today?

We’ll invest in fresh landscaping, new seating, outdoor play equipment, a stage, and more. We’ll also build a place for entrepreneurs to try their ideas in the hopes that successful concepts will lead to permanent Downtown storefronts. Kerouac Park will become the perfect place for everything from lounging to hosting bigger events.

Learn more about the campaign and give today. Together we can make Kerouac Park a place to relax, play, mingle, laugh, gather, and celebrate Lowell. Please share this campaign with your friends and family and like our page on Facebook.

    Great idea. But the park needs more than upgrading – it needs connection. In other words, rather than being an island and isolated from downtown or Boarding House Park, attempts should be made to increase better access to it such as improved crosswalks, etc. Bridge Street being four lanes is an impediment to reaching Kerouac Park. The park is also hidden from view on Merrimack Street: creating a gateway for flow from downtown might attract more foot traffic. Make it easier and simpler for people to reach it. Also, to shield traffic noise from Bridge Street add more greenery, ala shrubs, bushes, etc.
