As "America’s First Public Park" and an oasis in downtown Boston, Boston Common is one of the most treasured green spaces in the world. The goal of the Master Plan is to create a Common that will serve the people of Boston and visitors alike while protecting this special place for decades to come. Overall, we envision an atmosphere of civic access and engagement with a profound sense of identity and a deep-rooted connection to this vibrant city.
