Foss Park Broadway & McGrath Hwy, Somerville, MA02145
With over 15 acres of open space, Foss Park is Somerville's largest park by far, and it's also one of the two oldest.…More In 1876, it was founded as Broadway Park. Today, its grassy expanse is flanked by busy McGrath Highway and Broadway. It's home to a well-equipped playground, soccer fields, several baseball diamonds, and tennis and basketball courts, as well as a DCR swimming pool and spray pool that offer free admission. An annual Foss Fest summer concert is held, as are yearly community clean-ups.
In 2002, the Friends of Foss Park formed to address neighborhood concerns about park conditions. In the years since, improvements made include landscaping, solar trash compactors, sidewalk repairs and new flower beds, as well as stepped up pool and tree care. In 2008, the state approved $2 million in funds to renovate the park, but the money has yet to be allocated by the Governor.

The park is owned by the state's Department of Conservation and Recreation.
In some towns, the Local Cultural Council (LCC) restricts itself to one important task: they award state grant money…More to local arts and culture organizations for worthy projects.

They are best-known for ArtBeat, a two-day summer arts festival that fills Davis Square with live music, dance, arts, crafts, food stands—and the occasional electric-guitar-wielding mummy. But that's not all they do.
Their Art Without Walls initiative brings art activities directly to youths in their neighborhoods. Via their Switchbox Project, they are transforming Somerville utility boxes into public works of art. And all summer long, their ArtsUnion initiative presents numerous cultural events in Union Square that range from Haitian or Punjabi cultural festivals to movies screened in Smell-o-Vision and an annual techno dance party under the McGrath Highway overpass.
With Union Square Main Streets, ArtsUnion also hosts the rather unusual fall Fluff Fest, which celebrates the Somerville-born snack food Marshmallow Fluff. Finally, special Arts Council events throughout the year include the popular holiday lights Illumination Tour.
In short, this is an organization bubbling over with creative ideas, and lucky for us, they tend to make them happen.
