MAKE THE UNDERPASS BEAUTIFUL - 
AND LOCAL
A GATEWAY TO WOOSTER SQUARE

 
A group of Wooster Square residents is working to develop a public art project under the Chapel Street underpass (Chapel Street between Hamilton Street and Franklin Street).
The plan is to brighten up this entryway to Wooster Square with images that speak to the neighborhood's rich past, present, and future.

Take a minute to fill out the community survey today! What images do you think best represent the Wooster Square neighborhood?

WOOSTER SQUARE IS LIVING HISTORY 
BUT IT'S ALSO THE SCENE OF LIVELY LIVING

Families relax, the kids play, school groups have recess and games (see photo), and friends of all ages play ball. People read, do yoga or tai chi, walk their dogs, have picnics - and enjoy pizza!  Wooster Square is truly a living park.
