Open Space

Massport has also worked with community leaders to create more parks and open space for residents.  This includes award-winning parks like the South Boston Maritime Park and the Piers Park in East Boston.  It also includes the new 18 acre Bremen Street Park in East Boston and up to $15 million for a series of four Airport Edge Buffers. Massport also improved a two-mile-long trail system located on 42.5 acres of property at L.G. Hanscom Field. The trails now allow the public to walk from town-owned conservation land in Bedford to Virginia Road in Concord while also providing an emergency access to remote areas of the airport.
