With Moakley Park's location along Boston Harbor near Carson Beach, visitors from around the region were welcomed as part of Climate Preparedness week to learn about the comprehensive long-term plan for the Park, which balances recreational needs and community gathering spaces with protection against climate-change impacts such as flooding from increased rainfall and sea level rise.
Save the Harbor/Save the Bay was there on land and sea, activating the beach area with aerialists, acrobats and jugglers thanks to our partners at the Boston Circus Guild.
Kids and families also joined us to try their hands at surf casting, and learned stories and songs of the sea from storyteller Norah Dooley as the pirate Mary Read! It was a beautiful fall day at the beach, and one of the highlights was the kayaking lessons offered by our good friends from the Piers Park Sailing Center.
Thank you to the City of Boston and our great partners for a wonderful event providing free outdoor activities for kids, families and community, and for highlighting this outstanding waterfront resource in South Boston.
