New Urban Park Coming to the South End

An exciting new urban park is coming to the South End thanks to the developers of the popular Ink Block community.

National Development, along with MassDOT, are planning to revitalize a long-neglected area of the city, according to the Boston Herald.

Beneath a raised portion of Interstate 93, there are plans to create a new park complete with: a boardwalk, waterside performance space, basketball court, bike paths, a dog park and a community event space.

The I-93 underpass between Albany Street and Frontage Road is known for high levels of crime, however through this redevelopment they hope to bridge the South End and South Boston and transform the space.

This urban park will compliment the new development in the area and offer a new and exciting community space.

South End Urban park Plans

The park opening schedule and list of activities is expected to be announced next spring and will hold a minimum of 24 events a year.

The popular South End Open Market that is currently held at Ink Block could also potentially relocate to the park once it is complete.

The park will encourage pedestrian and bike traffic, while the boardwalk will specifically provide a connection between the South End and South Boston by connecting to an exciting walkway to South Station.

Plans also include a 24-hour parking lot for 176 cars.
