Welcome

The Friends of the Public Garden works to protect and improve Boston’s first public parks — the Boston Common, Public Garden, and Commonwealth Avenue Mall.

A membership organization open to all, the Friends was founded in 1970 by concerned citizens. Working closely with the Boston Parks Department, we support ongoing improvements to the parks. Since 1970, we have funded the expert care of trees and plantings and the maintenance and restoration of sculptures and fountains. We work as staunch advocates to protect the parks from misuse and encroachment.
