This park is well used by the neighborhood. There are ALWAYS kids playing soccer, basketball, or climbing on the jungle gym. The view from the park is unbelievable and the sunsets are breathtaking. My favorite thing to look at in this park are the fishermen who climb over the fence, walk to the end of the pier, and try to catch that evening’s dinner.
LoPresti Park, also known as North Ferry Park, is a four acre park located on the waterfront in the Maverick Square section of East Boston on Sumner and New Streets. The site offers spectacular sweeping views of the Inner Harbor and downtown skline. A long pier and dock connects to the wooden Harborwalk promenade. The park includes a number of active recreation facilities including two basketball courts with lights for evening play, street hockey rink, children’s play lot, children’s spray fountain, and lawns for informal field games. At dusk, the park is a popular spot for recreational fishing. (LoPresti Park)
