I can see Piers Park from my kitchen window and vice versa. Let me tell you, this park is unbelievably beautiful! There is a wedding or a quinceañera taking photographs every weekend. TOTALLY worth the trip to Eastie. You can see my apartment from the dock! Be sure to bring your camera. You’re going to want to take a few of your own shots of Boston’s skyline!
Piers Park is a beautifully landscaped, $17 million park developed in consultation with the East Boston community. Owned, constructed and maintained by Massport, Piers Park provides direct access to the waterfront along with spectacular views of downtown Boston across the inner harbor. Follow a 600-foot pedestrian promenade to two pavilions, which provide a view of the city skyline across the water, and four smaller shade pavilions. One pavilion honors the memory of Donald McKay, the noted builder of clipper ships whose facility was in East Boston. Piers Park Sailing Center, located in the park, provides an affordable and popular community-boating program. The park also features an amphitheater, an outdoor fitness system, and a large playground. (Piers Park)
