Event Description

 Dear Franklin Park Friends, 

Most of you have heard about the terrible attack that happened in our park yesterday at 1:30 in the afternoon on one of the paths near Scarboro Pond. A woman was walking with a child in a carriage when a man approached from behind, pulled her off the path and attempted to sexually molest and strangle her. Her screams alerted nearby golfers and the attacker ran from the scene when the golfers arrived. Luckily she is not seriously hurt, but her emotional distress will not be  easily forgotten. There has been nothing like this for the last ten years; Boston Police say Franklin Park is one of the safest in the city.
As Franklin Park advocates we cannot ignore the incident. A woman and a park were violated. Please join me and Franklin Park Coalition board and members on Thursday evening for a walk around the golf course loop path. We will walk together in support and safety to witness the beauty and peace of the park, even in the dark, and work to overcome the fear that comes from knowledge of an attack like this.
Meet at the Golf Clubhouse at 5:30 on Thursday evenTaing, December 1st, bring flashlights to light up the night. Women with strollers are most welcome - we will surround and protect you.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the woman who was attacked, please join us Thursday night and spread the word to your neighbors, friends and fellow park users.
