Franklin Park

Neighbors of Franklin Park and Park Street, among other places, have noticed the sudden appearance of unattributed aphorisms this week written in chalk on the sidewalk. An unidentified poet has been hard at work executing positive messages in impeccable hand writing on the concrete in various places in the city. 

This summer Franklin Park will host four free concerts featuring classical music by The Alameda Music Project that are open to the public.

The Alameda String Academy will present three Saturday lunchtime concerts, featuring music from Dvorak, Mozart, Vivaldi and Boccherini, along with pre-concert musical crafts and an opportunity for children and adults to try their hands at playing a stringed instrument.
