Dear Kelly Family: The wonderful memories and comments are an enduring testament of how your father made Southie, the city, and the world a better place. He left an indelible mark on the character of all he touched; and personally, my family was blessed to receive his kindness, friendship, and support.

God Bless.

The Friends of Titus Sparrow Park are grateful to Councillor James Kelly for making our park a beautiful green space for our neighborhood.

By the late 1990s, Sparrow Park had become a place of splintering benches, warped and cracked basketball and tennis courts, run-down playgrounds and a muddy, previously-grassed area used as an off-leash dog run.

Determined neighbors developed renovation plans and went to Councillor Kelly. He energetically championed our proposal and added funding into the City budget. When the final City budget didn’t include enough funding, he added extra. In the second budget year, the Sparrow Park renovation budget was cut in half. Councillor Kelly saw that every penny was restored.

Renovated Titus Sparrow Park re-opened in 2004, completely transformed. Yes, the design was beautiful; but even better are all the people using it - for games of all kinds, for reading, conversing, and listening to music on summer evenings. There is a lush meadow to roll down, summer and winter, quality courts for shooting baskets and for playing the tennis game that Titus Sparrow became so famous for.

Its users are of many colors, languages, rich and poor and everything in between, young and old. They reflect the wonderful diversity of the South End.

Seldom is it so clear to whom one owes thanks for public improvements, but not here. Without Jim Kelly, it would not have happened. From the Friends of Titus Sparrow Park and all its happy users…
Thank you Jim!
