People’s Harbor Toolkit

Together we can ensure Boston Harbor remains a vibrant place for all to use and enjoy. Here’s how you can help:

Pledge to Protect the People’s Harbor. Join our fight by signing our pledge today.

Know Your Rights. Read our People’s Guide to the Massachusetts Public Waterfront Act to find out how you can get involved when new developments are being planned for waterfront neighborhoods.

Get Out and Enjoy Boston’s Waterfront. This interactive map can help you discover and navigate public spaces along the Harborwalk that are privately owned. The tool includes restrooms, green lawns, seating areas, fishing docks and observation decks.

Pitch a Blanket. Get out and enjoy Boston’s waterfront on your own or with friends, family, and colleagues. Here’s our guide to pitch a blanket on your own. Or, sign up here to be the first to learn when our next Pitch a Blanket day will be held.
