Franklin Park: Fairy House Building Workshop


Spring is in the air and so is the reappearance of magical woodland creatures in the New England outdoors.  In order to accommodate the local elf and fairy community, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will be co-hosting their third annual Fairy House Building Workshop with the Franklin Park Coalition on Thursday, April 21, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Schoolmaster Hill in Franklin Park.

Local children and families are invited to welcome the magical creatures by building homes for them.  Spring is the best time to build fairy houses, experts say, providing the magical creatures with shelter for the coming summer months and the flitting season that begins in late May.

This free family event will include storytelling and books from ReadBoston, plant education from theMassachusetts Horticultural Society, and face painting.  Children are encouraged to wear their favorite fairy and elf costumes to encourage their tiny guests to alight in Franklin Park.  Natural materials will be provided, and youngsters are welcome to explore their surroundings to find natural elements such as sticks, stones, and leaves to adorn their fairy houses.

Located in Franklin Park’s historic 220-acre forest among oak and pine trees overlooking the William Devine Golf Course, Schoolmaster Hill provides the perfect location for fairy and elf habitat that recognizes their connection to the earth by utilizing building materials from the woods around them.

Schoolmaster Hill is located on Circuit Drive between the William Devine Golf Course Clubhouse and Shattuck Hospital.  For more information, please call the Franklin Park Coalition at (617) 442-4141, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department at (617) 961-3047, or visit online at www.cityofboston.gov/parks or www.facebook.com/bostonparksdepartment.
