East Boston Greenway

More than 20 years ago, The Trust for Public Land announced a plan to convert a stretch of long-abandoned rail corridor in East Boston into a pedestrian trail. We then protected this corridor, which today comprises one of the city’s most beloved linear parks, used by tens of thousands of runners, walkers, and bikers. East Boston has fewer acres of park per resident than much of the rest of the city, and this Greenway forms a vital axis for health, wellness, and climate-friendly transportation in the community.
