Grant Park Ribbon Cutting

By Edith Morgan

At last, Grant Park is ready to be formally recognized! Saturday, August 6, at 12 noon, there will be a formal ribbon cutting ceremony at the Park, with city officials (elected and appointed) there to celebrate the occasion.

The ceremony will mark the completion of the improvements in this neighborhood park, celebrating the achievement of several years of persistent and unfailing efforts by Winifred Octave, who lives right across from the park, and her co-chair, Debra Bolz.

Though small, this park is situated in an area (off Lincoln Street) that badly needed it, and is used by many residents in this densely populated Worcester neighborhood.

All are invited to come and view the new basketball court, the garden area, the places to sit beneath trees and just enjoy the outdoors, meeting with friends and neighbors.

The ceremony will be followed by the Green Hill Neighborhood Association’s fourth annual picnic, which is usually attended by more than 300 neighbors and friends!

Our picnic will feature music, food, entertainment for children, including balloons and face painting, and displays by several city agencies. Refreshments are being donated by area businesses and individuals, and volunteers will be helping with the set-up, serving, grilling, and cleaning up.

A great day for South Worcester!
