Event description
Join us for the fourth walk that will trace 6-miles of waterfront in Charlestown and East Boston and include a short boat ride.

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 walk includes the Charlestown locks, Paul Revere Park, East Boston Shipyard, and the Lo Presti Park.

We’ll be traveling through a mix of city, state, federal, and private parks, and we’re excited to have friends from the National Park Service kick off the walk before we head to the Charlestown Navy Yard. We’ll also be joined by members of the Friends of the Boston Harborwalk and representatives from some of the waterfront developments that we’ll be passing, but it will not be a formal walking tour.

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 less than a 5-minute walk from North Station.

The walk ends near the Maverick MBTA subway station.

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
