We want everyone to know that we have a harbor that it is clean, swimmable, fishable, and has over 40 miles of publicly accessible shoreline via the Harborwalk. It includes 34 unique Islands that are home to National, State, and City Parks — the only partnership of its kind in the country.
The Harbor makes Greater Boston a great place to live, work, learn and play all year around, but it’s almost summer and that’s the best time to be on the water!
We want everyone to come on down and use the Harbor. It’s yours. You’ve spent billions of dollars cleaning it up, and the public and private sectors have spent millions more making the shoreline accessible. The Harbor transcends neighborhoods and municipalities and is meant to be shared by all. Take the MBTA, ride your bike, walk or drive down to the waterfront.
It is our largest and most valuable blue and green public open space; as Mitch Silver, NYC Parks Commissioner says, the Harbor is the lungs that “give our brains room to breathe”.
See you on the Harbor!
