BOSTON —Armenian Heritage Park on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway is slated to be completed by fall 2010, Armenian Heritage Foundation President James M. Kalustian announced at a recent board meeting.

“We are making extraordinary progress,” he reported. “As of July 2009, 50 percent of the construction and engineering documents have been completed by the design team. The plans are presently being reviewed by the various state and city agencies.”

The Armenian Heritage Foundation’s Board of Directors is comprised of representatives from the 37 parishes and organizations within the Armenian American community in Massachusetts.

A gift to the City of Boston and recognized as one of the better designed parks, the Armenian Heritage Park is meant to show the history of Boston as a port of entry for immigrants worldwide, for those who have migrated to US shores and contributed to American life and culture.

The park, situated on four-tenths of an acre on parcel 13 of the Greenway, will serve as a link between the Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Christopher Columbus Park.
