Martin’s Park has officially opened in Boston’s Seaport District at 64 Sleeper Street, along the Fort Point Channel and adjacent to the Boston Children’s Museum.
The park remembers Martin W. Richard who was just eight years old when he was killed at the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013. Martin’s sister, Jane, started the opening ceremony at the park by singing “A Million Dreams”. Martin’s parents, Bill and Denise, spoke to ceremony attendees and his brother, Henry, performed with his rock band. Many local families joined the Richards in opening this fun, inclusive park in memory of Martin.
