Boston Common Master Plan
The City of Boston has committed $28 million from the sale of the City’s Winthrop Square garage to renovate and enhance Boston Common. Of the funds, $23 million is capital funding, and $5 million is maintenance funding.
To establish the best strategy, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department is developing a Master Plan for Boston Common. We will perform this work in collaboration with:
- the Friends of the Public Garden, and
- design consultants, Weston & Sampson.
The goal is to create a vision for the Common that will serve Boston residents and visitors, while also protecting this special place for decades to come. With your help, we imagine achieving an atmosphere of civic access and engagement. We want to create a profound sense of identity and a deep-rooted connection to this historic yet vibrant City.
Join the process — help us shape the future of this beloved park!
