State Senator Ken Donnelly Passes, a Great Friend to Mary Cummings Park

Ken Donnelly

We were greatly saddened to hear of the passing of State Senator Ken Donnelly. We met with him just last summer to advance the process of having the Trustees of Reservations become park managers for the City of Boston. Ken was the main force behind this long-time effort. He looked out for Mary Cummings Park at many times over the years, using his influence to help preserve and enhance the park.

Mary Cummings Park was but one small aspect of the widespread efforts Ken brought to his constituents. Along with friends, family, and colleagues, we mourn the passing of a truly dedicated, effective, public servant.
