Martin's Park

The first-of-its-kind park is a lasting legacy of Martin Richard's welcoming, inclusive nature, and will provide enjoyment for generations of Boston's children, families and visitors.

Martin's Park opened on June 15, 2019. Adjacent to Boston Children's Museum, the City of Boston Parks Department created an inclusive park and play space that is the first-of-its-kind in the City. The Department oversaw the project honoring Martin W. Richard, the youngest victim of the Boston Marathon bombings. Located at 64 Sleeper Street on the South Boston waterfront, Martin's Park is a climate-resilient park that provides a space for children, families, and visitors of all abilities to learn, grow and play.
