Community Partnerships

A variety of local organizations and community groups partner with the City of Boston to help care for Moakley Park and offer programs and activities to the public. Below is a list of organizations who are actively involved in the park’s current offerings as well as planning efforts for its future:

Boston Harbor Now is a non-profit civic organization that works to ensure a publicly accessible and climate-resilient Boston Harbor, islands, and waterfront for all. As the City’s primary non-profit partner for Moakley Park, Boston Harbor Now provides vibrant and welcoming public programming, leads regular clean-ups and stewardship activities, and conducts community engagement to help shape the vision for the park’s future design. Boston Harbor Now works with adjacent public and private property owners to ensure that the flood protection and public space design of the surrounding area will integrate with the future park.
