East Boston Greenway Walking Tour - Part of the
Common Boston Series
Sunday June 9, 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Meet at Bremen Street Park gate at Brooks St, near Airport
Join BNAN and the Friends of East Boston Greenway on an excursion
from Bremen Street Park to Maverick Square to discover the
neighborhood’s historic railroad and maritime elements that are
now transformed into treasured park spaces. Although the Greenway
is the connecting thread of open space areas, it also provides a
buffer between the Logan Airport edge and the city. This tour will
highlight how this international transportation hub has
significantly altered the face of the neighborhood and the
greenway’s role in reclaiming East Boston’s splendor. Register online
or by phone 617.391.4017. This is part of a series of East Boston
tours happening that day. Learn more on the Common
