Celebrate Boston's Public Open Spaces By Pitching A Blanket

Last month FPNA invited you to Waterfront Development In Your Neighborhood presented by the Harborfront Neighborhood Alliance in partnership with Conservation Law Foundation (CLF) and Boston Harbor Now, focusing on your rights to public access and amenities along our waterfront. 

This summer CLF and the Boston Waterfront Partners* invite you to pitch a blanket with your friends and neighbors, enjoy games and refreshments, bring a picnic, and learn more about your rights along Boston’s waterfront. Did you know that Massachusetts law grants each of us the right to use open spaces on Boston's waterfront? Getting out and pitching a blanket is a great way to reclaim public spaces in Boston’s Seaport and Downtown Waterfront areas. It's only by actively using our public spaces that we can ensure Boston Harbor remains vibrant and accessible to all – the People's Harbor we all deserve.  

Celebrate Boston's Public Spaces 
Thursday, July 25, 2019
5:30 PM –7 PM 
The Public Green, Seaport District 
1 Marina Park Drive, Boston

Please keep in mind that per the rules of the Public Green no dogs are allowed

What else can you do?

Know your rights. CLF will be providing “People’s Harbor” tote bags to guests on a first come, first serve basis. Each tote bag will include a USB with copies of the People’s Guide to Chapter 91 in English and in Spanish. 

Get out and enjoy Boston's Waterfront. Use the Boston Harborwalk Map Tool to discover public spaces along the Harborwalk and waterfront. You can find restrooms, green lawns, seating areas, fishing docks and observation decks. You can also look up Chapter 91 licenses and management plans governing access to waterfront public spaces in your neighborhood. 

Take the pledge to Protect the Boston Harbor and the Public Waterfront

*FPNA and the Harborfront Neighborhood Alliance are members of the Boston Waterfront Partners along with CLF and many other advocates of our waterfront.
