The Lawrence & Lillian Solomon Foundation

Established in 2005, The Lawrence & Lillian Solomon Foundation is dedicated to creating a unified network of beautiful parks and greenways, fostering community connections with open spaces. Their values include universal access, empowerment, collaborative visioning, shared stewardship, excellence, and continuous learning.

Founded by David Solomon and Herb Nolan, the foundation pioneered a public/private partnership model, leading to innovative greenway projects. In 2016, the Barr Foundation supported their expansion through A Greener Greater Boston, enabling broader community engagement and ambitious planning initiatives.
