The Kendall Square Rooftop Garden, now formally known as the Urban Park Roof Garden located in Kendall Square, is a hidden gem at the heart of Cambridge. The new name comes with a brand-new look to the Urban Park.
As part of the 2019 remodel, pickleball courts were installed atop the rooftop, bringing a whole new level of fun to the already beloved, but not well-known park. Guests are welcome to find their competitive side as they enjoy the courts which are open to the public. Occasionally the net is raised, and volleyballs are provided as the court is designed to serve both the requirements of pickleball and volleyball!
The newly remodeled Urban Park roof garden opened to the public on June 2022. With the renovations came a host of events that will return this summer as well!
