About the Public Space and Urban Forestry Division

The Public Space and Urban Forestry Division (PSUF) plans and manages the renovation of existing parks and the development of new parks and open spaces. We work with residents and consultants to create a vibrant network of outdoor spaces for passive and active recreation, relaxation, and environmental health in Somerville.

We encourage community members to get involved with our park projects by attending community meetings, which are advertised on this page, on social media, in local newspapers, and on City calendars. To report an issue in one of the parks, please call our 311 customer service line (or 617-666-3311 if you’re outside the City).
