Last month, we reported on a random act of kindness that happened in South Boston at Sister Mary Veronica Park. A gentleman was hired to paint a house near F and 8th. He always took his lunch in this park and noticed the condition of the statue of Mary. He decided she would use a little love and gave her a much-needed coat of paint.
Well, thanks to some observant readers of Caught in Southie alerted us to this news, Sister Mary Veronica Park – located on West 8th between F and Grimes Streets – is on the market!
According to one disappointed reader, “This is the only green space we have on this end. And we were told for years it was given to the neighbors from the archdiocese.” Evidently, the Archdiocese of Boston changed its mind.
A new neighborhood group has been organized to stop the sale of the park – The Committee to Save Sister Mary Veronica Park! A stand-out event is scheduled for October 28th at 1pm at the park! You can also sign the petition here!
