Shipyard Park is a nearly 12-acre community park located within the historic and vibrant Charlestown neighborhood of Boston. In December 2021, the Boston Planning & Development Agency (“BPDA”) issued a Request for Proposals (“RFP”) from qualified parties to enter into a license agreement to activate Shipyard Park in the Charlestown Navy Yard, with a focus on activation that both promotes the public's use of the area and attracts a diverse audience to engage and interact with the waterfront.

In January 2022, the BPDA received three proposals from qualified parties that are interested in the Shipyard Park Activation opportunity.
