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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
