Kerouac Park Receives Its Own Stage
A Sun Staff Report
LOWELL — The transformation of Kerouac Park is moving forward as a new stage box was delivered last week.
Part of an effort begun last year, the stage will provide opportunities for more active and creative uses of the park with yoga and Zumba classes already scheduled and a musical and concert series in the works.
The stage is a metal, 20 by 8 shipping container with a drop down thrust stage that extends the stage space to 20 by 16 when open.
Organizers hope the stage and park will add to downtown Lowell’s growing event and performance scene.
Another container will serve as a pop-up storefront, empowering local entrepreneurs to test their business ideas during events in the park. Pop-up tents, chairs, tables, lights and other items to support park events are also stored on site to support events.
