Martin's park opened at the Smith family waterfront

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.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh, Governor Charlie Baker, and the family of Martin Richard today joined hundreds of residents to celebrate the opening of Martin's Park at the Smith Family Waterfront. 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.
