       Yea, City Seed!
The first City Seed Farmers Market was in Wooster Square's Russo Park. There are now weekly markets throughout the City, but ours is still held there every Saturday. It is a major neighborhood asset. 
     Harvey's Walk 
Named in honor of Historic Wooster Square board member and 
advocate who died in May 2013, this walk - located in Russo Park between Chapel and Wooster Streets where City Seed Farmer's market is held - benefits us all. Learn more: Click here.

WOOSTER SQUARE  IS LIVING HISTORY - 
BUT IT'S ALSO THE SCENE OF LIVELY LIVING
Families relax, the kids play, school groups have recess and games (photo above), and friends play ball. People read, walk their dogs, have picnics - and pizza!  (photo at right)

Update: January 21, 2016 
PARK BENCHES REMOVED FOR RESTORATION

The 22 benches in Wooster Square Park have been removed for a complete restoration job, supported by donations from individuals, families and organizations that have longtime connections to Wooster Square.  The City’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Trees, with the donated funds, has contracted for the restoration. The benches will be restored, and reinstalled in place. The like-new benches should be back in place by early spring.  click to learn more

THE WALK TO AND FROM TOWN JUST GOT SAFER
The lights help alert motorists to the crossing.

Just one year after a tragic accident we have new traffic calming measures installed on Olive Street. The rapid rectangular flashing beacons ("RRFBs") on Olive Street at Court Street and Greene Street are helping make the neighborhood safer for everyone – drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians. The new striping and curb cuts have already visibly improved traffic and access. Pedestrian crossing signs help, too.


Thanks go to our Ward 8 Alder Aaron Greenberg and to Doug Hausladen (Transportation, Traffic & Parking) and Giovanni Zinn (Engineering) for delivering such an important safety feature to this busy street.
