Ferrous Urban Wild in Lawrence

via Groundwork USA


For over 15 years, Groundwork Lawrence worked with local residents, the City of Lawrence, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and a constellation of community partners to establish a park at the confluence of the Merrimack and Spicket Rivers, where successive industries once stood.


Envisioned as Groundwork Lawrence’s first green space action project, the beautiful Ferrous urban wild that resulted from this determined collaboration—a serene outdoor space enjoyed by local residents and visitors alike—serves as the capstone of the Spicket River Greenway and a living testament to the power of shared vision and collaborative leadership in a community.


Find out what's at the end of Island Street and hear from Lawrence residents like Lesly Melendez, Tomas Lopez and Myra Ortiz about how Ferrous Park will help our city.
