Fort Point District 100 Acres Open Space Community Workshop

Updated 10.28.19: Over 100 people attended the BPDA 's first 100 Acres Open Space Public Planning event held in conjunction with Sasaki. 
In case you missed it, you may view the presentation here. You won't be able to drop gumballs or coins to indicate your open space preferences; however, you can share your opinion by taking the Fort Point 100 Acres Open Space survey available now until midnight Tuesday, November 5th. 

The Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) invites you to join the Fort Point District 100 Acres Open Space Community Workshop.

The Fort Point District 100 Acres Open Space public engagement and concept design process will serve as a guide for future development of open spaces in the area.

When: 10 AM - 12:30 PM*
Where: Artists For Humanity 100 W 2nd Street Boston, MA 02127

*An overview presentation will begin at 10 am followed by the community workshop activities.

Current goals of the project include: 

• Provide a vision and programmatic plan for future development of parks and open space that are accessible and available to all. 
• Ensure a diverse and balanced mix of parks uses based on community input and user needs.
• Develop a system of open space areas that relate to each other, the surrounding built context and the historic Fort Point Channel District. 
• Design landscapes that are adaptive and resilient to climate change impacts including sea level rise, storm surge, heat island, and stormwater, and contribute to neighborhood flood protection. 
• Establish meaningful connections to the Fort Point Channel watersheet and  surrounding open space, streets and linear connections, including Harborwalk and the South Bay Harbor Trail.
