Friends of Childe Hassam Park
Childe Hassam park was dedicatied in the name of the prolific American Impressionist painter. The park honors its namesake artist as well as the arts community in the South End.
Hassam was born, raised, educated in Boston and, for a time, lived and painted within a few blocks of the site. The park is located at the corner of Columbus Avenue and Chandler Street in Boston's historic South End Neighborhood. With a long and much lauded career Hassan was well recived by the museams, galleries, the public, and fellow artist for his skill and dedication to his craft. He passed away in East Hampton in 1935, at age 75.
