This is the latest in our ongoing series highlighting the residents, businesspeople and others who participate in the Adopt an Island program. Adopters volunteer their time, talents and resources to transform traffic circles, triangles, squares and corner crescents into attractive and welcoming public spaces.
This week we visit the Belvidere neighborhood where Frank Provencher’s Lowell pride welcomes travelers along Rogers Street at its intersection with Boylston and Fairmount.
Frank has been maintaining two Eastham Circle islands for about 5 years. Last year he also took on the island at Rogers and Nesmith Streets, adding flower planters to the concrete island.
“It’s beneficial to the neighborhood and the city,” says Frank who encourages everybody to contribute to the city’s streetscape by working on their properties.
If you happen to be passing one of Frank’s islands, let him and his gardeners know you appreciate their work in making this busy intersection a stunning entryway to the city.
