BPDA Releases Draft Fort Point 100 Acres Open Space Concept Plan

Jan 05, 2021

Following a yearlong public engagement process, the Boston Planning & Development Agency (BPDA) has released the draft Fort Point 100 Acres Open Space Concept Plan for community feedback. The draft plan builds on the 100 Acres Master Plan and Climate Ready Boston, and establishes more detailed park designs for an open space network at the heart of the Fort Point neighborhood as it grows over time. The proposed park network strengthens connections to the waterfront, creates a more resilient community, and expands recreation, events, and green space access.

The open spaces are designed to become year-round destinations for Boston as whole, while also meeting current and future local neighborhood needs. An underlying focus of this plan is for the parks to be resilient and welcoming to all. Strategies to create a more inclusive park network are woven tightly throughout the recommendations in this plan.

The draft Fort Point 100 Acres Open Space Concept Plan will serve as a guide for future development of open space resources as the 100 Acres is built out. This plan describes a vision for a connected set of distinct, destination-quality open space experiences, reflective of community priorities and needs identified through research and analysis. In addition, the ground floor recommendations in this plan identify opportunities for indoor spaces to enhance the district experience.

Comments and feedback on the draft plan can be shared via the website through February 5, 2021, or while attending any of the following three events:
