Southwest Corridor Park Alliance

About the Southwest Corridor Park Alliance

For over three decades, we have provided a forum for community input regarding the Southwest Corridor Park. With a new name in 2023, the Southwest Corridor Park Alliance, formerly called PMAC, serves as the advisory group for the park. Together with the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and the Southwest Corridor Park Conservancy (southwestcorridorpark), the Southwest Corridor Park Alliance helps to channel the energy of users, friends, and volunteers into active stewardship.

Get involved with the Southwest Corridor Park Alliance

Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. We are currently meeting virtually via Zoom.

The first part of each monthly meeting, from 7:00 pm to 7:30 pm is devoted to public safety updates. Police from the city, state, MBTA, and Northeastern University report on safety concerns, proposing and soliciting solutions to public safety issues. The second part of the meeting is given over to community updates and member input, with discussion on a range of matters such as special park projects, bicycle/walking path improvements, improvements in signage, volunteer activities, care of plantings and shrubs and membership outreach and advocacy. We are also featuring guest speakers and presentations to learn more about a wide range of park-related topics.
