Justice Edward O. Gourdin Veterans Memorial Park Ground Breaking

Join us on-site as we break ground on this historic park. 

Justice Edward O. Gourdin Veterans Memorial Park, located in the heart of Nubian Square (formerly Dudley Square), will now be home to a memorial plaza dedicated to the African-American veterans of Massachusetts. The 18,000-square-foot triangular parcel is bordered by Washington Street, Malcolm X Boulevard, and Shawmut Avenue. The project is the result of the steadfast, multi-year efforts of the Veterans and Friends of Gourdin Memorial Park community group.

The artwork design and construction is being funded by the Browne Fund, the Mayor's Capital Improvement Program, and a grant from the MA Department of Veterans Services. The overall park construction is being funded by the Mayor’s Capital Improvement program with a total budget of $1,272,200.
