  • Please take the Esplanade Usage Survey! The Esplanade Association's last survey was in 2007, so they need to get as many responses as they can across the Greater Boston area to have a better understanding of the Esplanade’s visitorship.

Imagine one continuous greenway from the Neponset River to Franklin Park and up Columbia Road to Castle Island. Or from the Mystic River through Sullivan Square and Charlestown to downtown Boston.

This is the future. A 200+ mile network of tree-lined, shared-use paths linked together so you don’t have to stop and start. When completed, this system will connect every neighborhood to open space, transit and jobs and thereby increase mobility, promote active recreation, improve climate change resiliency and enhance our city’s competitiveness in the global economy.
