The Municipality of Brockton has purchased a vacant lot on Durham Street formerly owned by the Wong family to create a downtown green-space and public gathering area. The property at 312 Durham Street is in a central location and connected to a parking lot, making it suitable for an urban-style park to support downtown businesses.

The Wong family ran a restaurant at that site for many years, and its contributions to the community will be recognized and incorporated into the design of the park. The municipality will welcome comments and ideas from the community about design plans for the area before it’s developed.
