Potential uses for the Malden Hospital site to enrich community life and match Malden and Medford needs
  • Incubator space
  • Community meeting spaces - rentable space
  • Combined Use open/recreational space and moderate income elder housing
  • A toddler and parents learning/socializing facility
  • Walking paths, Picnic areas, Community gardens
  • Café, Performance and arts center, Outdoor bandstand
  • Tennis courts, Ball field, Soccer field, Outdoor workout space, Skateboard park  
Reasons to consider alternate proposals other than an almost 400-unit apartment, condo,  and assisted living complex
  • Traffic Overload: Adding over 500 cars to an already heavily trafficked area
  • Environmental Impact: Risk to stressed Fellsmere Pond ecosystem
  • Expensive Housing: Cost of units beyond reach of median local incomes
  • Green Space Deficit: Malden has the 2nd lowest ratio of green space
  • Construction Impact: Developers “hope to avoid” blasting/damage to nearby foundations.
  • WHO MOSTLY BENEFITS: The developer, NOT the community

    If you want to make your own lantern, arrive early at 5:30 pm for our lantern making workshop.  (Lanterns will need time to dry before the walk.)  Pre-made lanterns will also be available for purchase for $5.

    In between we will have various events such as tag games and storytime to entertain the kids.

    Feel free to bring snacks and a blanket and have a picnic on the field in between events.
