This is the website for the City of Boston’s new Planning Department, which launched on July 1. The staff and many responsibilities of the Boston Planning & Development Agency have moved to the Planning Department of the City of Boston including planning & zoning, urban design, development review, and real estate divisions. Please excuse any misalignment you may see on our site as we transition to the City. Learn more

The East Boston Greenway is a linear park constructed along an abandoned railroad right-of-way, linking together several significant open space areas in East Boston, including Piers Park, Memorial Stadium, Bremen Street Park, Wood Island Bay Marsh and Belle Isle Marsh. The completed Greenway will consist of over 12 acres of park land and provide a 3.3 mile pathway system through the heart of East Boston. The first section of the Greenway from the East Boston Piers to the Bremen Street Park has been completed. Currently the Massachusetts Port Authority is constructing the Wood Island Marsh Link, a half-mile pathway which will connect Bremen Street Park to Wood Island Bay Marsh. This section of the Greenway will include open space areas at Neptune Road and an overlook park at the Wood Island Marsh. The City of Boston is also advancing a design for the Narrow Gauge Link of the Greenway which will transform an old railroad bed adjacent to the MBTA’s Blue Line into a new section of pathway, further extending the Greenway from Wood Isle Marsh to the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Constitution Beach recreation area.
