Situated between the neighborhoods of South Boston and the beach, Moakley Park is perfectly positioned to become both a waterfront park for the city, and a backyard we share. The future of the park is envisioned here as a space of social and environmental mixing that anticipates climate-based changes to the shoreline, new types of recreation and neighborhood activity within the park, and increased access while respecting and embracing the park’s history and the many memories and experiences associated with the park.
