Frederick Douglass Park is a public park located in Lynn, Massachusetts, dedicated to the renowned abolitionist and social reformer Frederick Douglass.

Located in the heart of Lynn’s thriving arts district, this welcoming pocket park honors the culture and heritage of Lynn—with the “Stories of Lynn” mural as its focal point—and pays tribute to Frederick Douglass, who lived in the city from 1841 to 1847.

The park, which opened in 2017, features a stone path that perfectly frames the mural and is adorned with decorative stones, benches and plants to create an inviting atmosphere. Along the path are bronze plaques that honor local figures and tell their stories. The park also includes a bronze bust of Frederick Douglass himself.
