Bob Mulcahy has been working as the Friends Project Manager for the past four years. He came to know the organization through his work as a project manager in the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, where he was employed for five years. As the Friends Project Manager, Bob oversees the direct care of the three parks, including tree pruning, planting, and disease control; turf care; and the organization’s various capital projects such as renovations at Brewer Fountain Plaza and the Boylston Street border of the Garden. His experience working with the City and his love for the parks give Bob a unique perspective on these greenspaces and the people who are involved in their care. Bob works hard to maintain and improve the beautiful, historic green spaces that are so beloved by the city, especially by Bob himself. “These three parks are a direct link to the history of the country and the residents that move through the downtown area,” he says. “To fight for them and beautify them is gratifying and motivating. I’m proud to be part of an organization that is committed to that.” There are many dedicated individuals who work in a variety of stewardship roles to keep the Boston Common, Public Garden, and Commonwealth Avenue Mall in their best condition for all to enjoy. The “Meet the Friends” series was created to showcase these passionate individuals and their significant contributions.
