Boston Harbor Association’s “Grading the Harborwalk” Day on May 21, 2011

News from The Boston Harbor Association:

First-Ever “Grading the HarborWalk” Day on 21 May 2011

Participate in the first-ever, city-wide “Grading the HarborWalk” Day, a community effort organized by The Boston Harbor Association to evaluate every segment of the 39-mile HarborWalk public access system on 21 May 2011, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Volunteers from Boston’s waterfront neighborhoods are asked to provide information about the HarborWalk system, including existing conditions and maintenance as well as recommendations for future improvements.  Citizens and community organizations’ reports on HarborWalk segments in Charlestown, Dorchester, Downtown, East Boston, North End, and South Boston will be compiled into a report to be shared with waterfront property owners and public officials.

This is your chance to provide suggestions on improvements to the HarborWalk system. Participants can sign up to evaluate anywhere from one to five miles of the HarborWalk. To participate, please contact, with subject line: Grading the HarborWalk Day.
