Fort Point Celebrates First Public Park
Fort Point is celebrating its first permanent public park today. The 1.6 acre A Street Park was accepted today by vote of the Boston Park Commission as the city's newest and Fort Point's first public park. The A Street Park is bordered by Richards, Medallion and W. 1st Streets. Built as a permanent public benefit in exchange for development rights, the new park, completed last summer features a half basketball court, dog park, community gardens, a children's play area and a flexible field. The park was acquired by the City with an ongoing agreement for maintenance and capital repair to be provided by the development group. More details to follow.
