About PMAC

For over three decades, the Parkland Management Advisory Committee (PMAC) has provided a forum for community voice for the Southwest Corridor Park. Through PMAC and the Southwest Corridor Park Conservancy (SWCPC) and others, the energy of park users and volunteers makes the Southwest Corridor Park one of the most intensely-used and most appreciated urban parks in the state parks network.

Meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm and rotate between the three sections of the park: at 70 St. Botolph Street in the Back Bay/South End; at the Boston police station on Washington Street in Jamaica Plain; and at the Boston Police Headquarters at One Schroeder Plaza on the corner of Ruggles and Tremont Streets, near Roxbury Crossing.

The first part of each monthly meeting is focused on public safety. Police from the city, state, MBTA, and universities meet with the community to discuss safety issues and resolve solutions to problems. The second part of the monthly meeting is the general community meeting. Discussions vary - focusing on park projects and maintenance, park improvements, volunteer activities, special events, communication and outreach, plus any special PMAC projects underway such as our mini-grant initiative, park user surveys, membership outreach or other park-related initiatives.

Join PMAC! The more members we have the more effectively we can advocate for this valuable urban park. Go to: PMAC membership form.
