New Mural at Cutillo Park

Over the course of the past week, Cutillo Park has been hosting a crew of teens from the Mayor’s office who have been working on a mural along the back wall of the park.

Neighbors of Cutillo Park and Morton Street recently sent a letter to city officials asking that something be done about the dilapidated state of the park. They requested regular cleaning as well as trash pickup, restaurant barrel removal and police patrol along the narrow public way.

North End residents are hopeful this mural is a step in the right direction toward restoring the park for local kids and families. Residents’ Association Parks and Open Spaces Chair Robyn Reed spoke about Cutillo Park at their June meeting, inviting anyone interested in helping with the murals or other park improvements to join her adhoc committee by emailing

  1. I’m told the Mayor’s Mural Crew (yes, that’s their official name!) will be working on the opposite walls behind the tot lot and swings this week if anyone wants to see them in action.

  2. T: I think it’s a chicken/egg scenario. It was sketchy so noone used it, so the sketchiness continued to thrive. As per a recent post on c;leaning it up mentioned, I think that cleaning it up and making it more pleasant to frequent, it can thrive once word gets around. As you know, only neglected un-populated areas become dens of drug use, teen drinking, etc.
    Keeping my fingers crossed……

  3. I wish the residents there good luck and success. Another North End playground, on Foster Street, has also been neglected for years. The ground is collapsing from the weight of cars parked there and the area is a filthy mess. A few years ago, Resident Parking signs mysteriously went up, yet the property is still listed under the Parks and Recreation Department. Don’t know of any other city playgrounds used as a parking lot. New residents don’t know that it has always been, and is still listed as, a playground. Of immediate concern is repaving the surface and keeping the area clean. Of historical interest, I recently discovered that Paul Revere once own a portion of the property. It was the site of his famous bell and canon foundry. The city needs to fix up and keep clean the Foster Street Playground.
