Eastern Canal - Kerouac Park (construction)

Kerouac Park is a park surrounded by a variety of monuments near downtown Lowell. It was created to serve as a memorial park for beat generation writer and Lowell citizen, Jack Kerouac. The park was constructed in the late 1980s and these photographs document the process.
