After three community meetings, the Boston Planning and Development Agency (BPDA), along with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the Greenway Conservancy recently announced the preferred design scheme for Parcel 2, soon to be a new neighborhood park.
The scheme selected, “The Meadow” will include a perennial garden, offering options for seasonality. There will be seating in one area of the park with about six tables with chairs, and the rest will be left open with views of the Custom House Tower from the slightly elevated boardwalk. Officials also stated this design scheme is the most budget-friendly.
The Meadow was selected over two other design concepts. Notable differences not included in the final design scheme are large trees and space for temporary art installations.
