Equestrian Statue of Paul Revere in the Prado with the North Church in the Background

NEWRA Parks and Recreation Committee plans to restore the Prado

Prado has become the new center of attention for the North End/Waterfront Residents’ Association’s Parks and Recreations Committee. A NEWRA monthly meeting was recently held this week at the Nazzaro Center and the committee expressed the Prado being in poor condition with crumbling brick, unkempt trees and weathered granite features.

The committee hopes to raise awareness to the historical site in the North End during the 150th birthday of sculptor Cyrus E. Dallin who created the Equestrian Statue of Paul Revere that resides in the Prado.

Even though Cyrus E. Dallin’s birthday is on November 22, the committee plans to throw the event in April 2012 in conjunction with the Cyrus E. Dallin Art Museum in Arlington, Massachusetts.
