Martin’s Park opened in June 2019—the result of a multi-year collaboration with the City of Boston, state officials, private corporations and generous donors. This inclusive, climate-resilient space on the Smith Family Waterfront is the first of its kind in Boston and a lasting symbol of Martin Richard’s kind, playful, welcoming spirit.
Designed with people of all ages and abilities in mind, Martin’s Park provides space for individuals, children and families to explore, play and reflect. Many of Martin’s favorite park features make it a place that appeals to those looking for adventure and solace alike.
This new landmark on Boston Harbor is a credit to all of our supporters whose dedication and commitment demonstrate the power of community and a desire for a kinder and more inclusive world. We are ever grateful for this vibrant, hopeful space that will welcome Boston’s residents and visitors for generations to come.
“Martin’s spirit will always be alive in Boston. Because of the work of the Richard family, countless families will come together at this park and share in the love, compassion and hope one special young boy taught us.”
