Women Together dreamed of buying a vacant half-acre property on Winslow Street and creating a public park. The park now exists. The creation of the park on the Winslow Street lot has allowed the Pleasant Street neighborhood to use this space as a community gathering place. In this urban context, usable greenspace helps improve the quality of life for residents since urban greenspace improves air and water quality, and provides space for people to recreate. By attracting businesses and visitors, this park further helps unify and revitalize the community and reduce crime. Women Together is a non-profit community group that is committed to ending violence by working together to create change.
