Improvements to Copley Square Park

| Established 1883 |


Renovations to Copley Square Park will begin in May, 2023. Please check back for a specific date! We expect this project will take 16 months, and will be reopened in early fall 2024. We will post periodic updates on our construction progress.

Renovations will include updates to the fountain, new lawn and planting areas, a raised seating area to protect existing trees (the Raised Grove), refurbished memorials and art, new seating, lighting, along with paved pathways and plaza space.

Please accept this notice as an effort to keep you and your neighbors informed.
