About the HarborWalk
A near-continuous, 43-mile linear park along Boston’s shoreline, the Harborwalk connects Boston’s waterfront neighborhoods to Boston Harbor and each other. Nearing completion, it stretches from the Neponset River in lower Dorchester to Constitution Beach in East Boston via Charlestown, the North End, Downtown, Seaport, South Boston and Dorchester.
Creation and Purpose
For over three decades, Boston Harbor Now has worked closely with the City of Boston, Massachusetts state agencies, private developers and waterfront residents to establish the Boston Harborwalk along 43 of the 47 miles of Boston’s shoreline (Logan Airport was excluded after September 11, 2001).
