The Boston Harborwalk stretches from Chelsea Creek to the Neponset River, through East Boston, Charlestown, North End, Downtown, South Boston, and Dorchester. The Harborwalk encompasses a variety of active and passive uses. An inviting public walkway along the waterfront, Harborwalk is designed to connect the public to a clean and restored Boston Harbor. The Harborwalk links the water's edge to the city's open space system. It passes parks, playgrounds, beaches, picnic areas, and fishing spots. The Harborwalk also connects to new and existing networks of inland trails, which will link the Harborwalk to established parkways and open space networks, including the Emerald Necklace system, the Charles River Esplanade, and the Rose Kennedy Greenway. In the future, the South Bay Harbor Trail will offer Boston residents a new and exciting way to access the Boston Harbor on foot or bicycle. The trail will extend from the Ruggles MBTA station and winds its way through Lower Roxbury, the South End, and Chinatown to reach the HarborWalk at the Fort Point Channel. Whether you're a Boston resident or a visitor, you'll find a tremendous variety of things to do on Boston's Harborwalk, from learning Boston's maritime history through architecture and historic exhibits along the historic North End, Charlestown and East Boston piers; viewing ships moving through the Harbor past Castle Island; sunrise viewing and swimming along the Dorchester Beaches; experiencing cultural opportunities, including the New England Aquarium and the Boston Children's Museum; taking in spectacular views of the Boston skyline from the piers and parks of East Boston; and taking part in community boating at the Charlestown Navy Yard or East Boston. You'll find many of the locations along the walk detailed throughout our website. Check the Harborwalk website for additional sites and routes.
