BSLA: Boston Harbor for All: Waterfront Parks & Public Spaces

June 4 @ 8:45 am - 5:00 pm

With major park planning initiatives across Boston and efforts throughout the region to build a resilient waterfront, this is the time to come together to learn about best practices in other cities and the work underway locally.

How can we design, fund, build, maintain, and program a transformative, welcoming, and resilient waterfront and islands to protect and enhance our region? How can we ensure that parks and public spaces along Boston Harbor are truly for everyone? The planning and design decisions we make today will impact our waterfront for decades to come. Only by collaborating and breaking down silos will we get it right.

Join Boston Harbor Now and public, private, and nonprofit partners for a second biennial event to address our harbor’s opportunities and most urgent challenges, with a focus on how we can work together to move key policies and projects from planning to action. The planning and design decisions we make today will impact our waterfront for decades to come. Only by collaborating and breaking down silos will we get it right.
