“Love Your Block” Spring Clean-Up May 6th 10AM

Please join us for a “Love Your Block” Spring Clean-Up at Ringgold Park from 10am to noon on Saturday, May 6, followed by a friendly neighborhood barbecue. 

The City of Boston is donating tools and mulch, but we need your help to get the park ready for the long-awaited summer season. Volunteers of any age should come with their own gloves or ready to get their hands dirty! 

If you’d also like to donate to and become a member of FORP, please click here. All funds are used to support horticulture, irrigation, maintenance and community events at the park.

Thank you for your support!

Spring Events at Ringgold!

Ringgold Park is planning a season full of fun events. Please mark your calendars and join us!

Sunday, April 16:  Our annual Egg Hunt. Let your kids search for candy-stuffed eggs in the play area and shake hands with a life-sized bunny.

Saturday, May 6:  Boston Shines Clean-up. The city provides the mulch, FORP provides the tools, and neighbors band together to beautify the park.

Saturday, June 17: Fête de la Musique and South End Garden Tour. We’re honored to serve as a stop for both this year. More details to come…




Halloween Party at Ringgold Park!

The annual Halloween Party at Ringgold Park is happening on Monday, October 31st at 5pm. This is always a fun event and a great way to kick off Halloween–with costumes, friends, neighbors and food donated by local businesses. Hope you can join us!

We’ll have pizza, sliders, veggies, fruit, snacks, juice, and water for the kids to fill up on before the candy craziness, plus some coffee to energize the adults.

Sincere thanks to our generous donors: Upper Crust Pizzeria, Picco, Foodie’s Markets, b.good and Caffe Nero.

Trick-or-treating will start at approximately 6pm, and Waltham Street will again be closed to traffic.

Before, during or after the party, please also consider making a donation to the Friends of Ringgold Park, a non-profit group dedicated to preserving this precious neighborhood resource. All funds raised go toward maintaining the park’s horticulture and playgrounds and hosting community events like this one.

For those who’d like to get more involved, we’re also looking for event volunteers and board members. Please email ringgoldpark@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Help Us Keep Ringgold Clean and Septic!

Please help us to keep Ringgold clean by reporting any overflowing or misuse of the trash bins to the City of Boston. You can call 311 or download the app from here.
We would also appreciate it if park-goers, young and old, refrained from feeding the birds (since seeds or crumbs attract other animals) and from using chalk on the fountain, as well as the granite benches around it (since they were designed for people to sit on).
