Event description
Join Boston Harbor Now for the first in a series of four walks celebrating the 35th anniversary of Boston's Harborwalk.

About this Event

Boston Harbor Now is excited to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Boston Harborwalk—the waterfront public path system that rings our historic harbor!

As part of the celebration, Boston Harbor Now is leading a series of adventurous walks on the existing Harborwalk -- the first of which will trace the 7-mile waterfront in Dorchester from the Neponset River Reservation to Carson Beach around Port Norfolk, Tenean Beach, Dorchester Shores Reservation, and Columbia Point. The kickoff will be presided by DCR Deputy Commissioner Priscilla Geigis, and light refreshments will be served.

This walk is a great opportunity to learn about the Harbor you love, connect to fellow community members, and get some healthy aerobic exercise in true 80's style!

Registration includes:

  • A guided adventure along Boston's waterfront at a breezy walking pace
  • An 80’s retro-branded, throwback fanny pack loaded with yummy snacks
  • A fun way to meet your daily recommended step count and burned calories
  • Hot coffee (served before the walk)
  • Refreshments (served at the end of the walk)
  • A chance to make new friends and memories on Boston's Harborwalk!

Please be advised: The walk will include a mixture of sidewalks, paths, dirt trails, and potentially stairs that participants will need to navigate. Participants should be in good health and able to walk for several hours at a steady pace.

This walking group has space for 150 participants, including resilient children and well-behaved dogs on leashes.

Transportation: Since the walk starts and ends in different locations, we strongly encourage you to take public transportation. The starting location is a 20-minute walk from the Ashmont Station on the Red Line, a 10-minute walk from the Cedar Grove stop on the Mattapan Trolley, and adjacent to the 202 and 215 bus stops.

The walk ends a 10-minute walk from the JFK/UMass T station on the Red Line with access to three commuter rail lines and the 5, 8, 16, and 41 bus lines.

A Brief History of the Harborwalk:

In October 1984, the Boston Redevelopment Authority released a “Harborpark” framework. Coupled later with revised Chapter 91 regulations, this ensured that the public would have access to all of the city’s waterfront outside of designated port uses. Today, nearly 39 miles of Harborwalk paths are complete.
