Mayor Martin J. Walsh has committed $28 million (of which $23 million is capital funding, and $5 million maintenance funding) from the sale of the City’s Winthrop Square garage to renovate and enhance Boston Common.
To establish the best strategy, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department is developing a Master Plan for Boston Common in collaboration with the Friends of the Public Garden and design consultants, Weston & Sampson. The goal of the Master Plan is to create a vision for the Common that will serve the people of Boston and visitors alike while protecting this special place for decades to come. With your help, we imagine achieving an atmosphere of civic access and engagement with a profound sense of identity and a deep-rooted connection to this historic yet vibrant city. Join the process — help us shape the future of this beloved park!
