Parks Survey! Help us understand how you use our parks and greenspaces!

Parks & Greenspaces in the North End
The North End Neighborhood Organization with four other district councils received a grant from Trust for Public Land-10 Minute Walk, a national effort led by The Trust for Public Land. These grants will help bolster local efforts to ensure that 100% of people in U.S. cities have access to parks or green space within a 10-minute walk of home by 2050.
We all know these are difficult times but we also realize that our friends and neighbors will be spending more time at home-in their neighborhoods and at parks and greenspaces.
NENO has a survey regarding our parks & greenspaces (not recreation centers or their programming) in the North End and we really hope you will take a few minutes to fill it out. It will really help when we are all advocating for our North End parks system. North End Parks & Greenspace Survey
