Located in Lowell's developing Hamilton Canal District, Utopian Park has been selected as the site of a major public art piece that will signal the area's importance as a creative entrance-way to the City of Lowell. The approximately 1-acre parcel at the convergence of the Hamilton and Pawtucket Canals is highly visible along Thorndike Street (via the Thorndike Street exit off the Lowell Connector) and is located next to the Lowell Judicial Center (currently under construction and scheduled for completion during Q4 of 2019). The park, which was designed by CRJA-IBI Group, is now open to the public.
