Park Planning

The Boston Parks and Recreation Department has been leading the planning process to redesign Moakley Park with Stoss Landscape Urbanism and Weston & Sampson as the designers and engineers. Boston Harbor Now, the South Boston Neighborhood House, and other groups have contributed to the public outreach. Everyone is encouraged to provide feedback as the plans are refined and the project is built in phases. Additional information can be found on the City of Boston website.
