Improvements to Copley Square Park

| Established 1883 |

Copley Square Park is located in the heart of Back Bay. For many years, Copley has been a gathering place for Boston residents and visitors.

Also known as “Art Square,” Copley is flanked by historically and culturally significant buildings. Copley Square hosts:

  • Boston’s First Night festival
  • the Boston Marathon
  • weekly farmers markets, and
  • numerous other events.

The park has a fountain and stage, a plaza, gardens, and lawn areas. There are also a number of memorials located throughout the square, as well as passive seating areas.
