Join Boston Harbor Now for the first in a series of four walks celebrating the 35th anniversary of Boston’s Harborwalk. Boston Harborwalk is the waterfront public path system that rings our historic harbor!

As part of the celebration, Boston Harbor Now is leading a series of adventurous walks on the existing Harborwalk — the first of which will trace the 7-mile waterfront in Dorchester from the Neponset River Reservation to Carson Beach around Port Norfolk, Tenean Beach, Dorchester Shores Reservation, and Columbia Point.  This walk takes place on Saturday, October 5th at 9am-12pm.  Tickets are $25 and can be purchased here! 

The walk will start and end in parks owned by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and we are excited to be joined by DCR’s Deputy Commissioner Priscilla Geigis to kick off the walk. We’ll also be joined by members of the Friends of the Boston Harborwalk and representatives from Columbia Point institutions, but it will not be a formal walking tour.

Light refreshments will be provided at the start and end points of the walk.

This walk is a great opportunity to learn about the Harbor you love, connect to fellow community members, and get some healthy aerobic exercise in true 80’s style!  The second walk will take place in South Boston.  You can get the details here! 

Registration includes:

  • A guided adventure along Boston’s waterfront at a breezy walking pace
  • An 80’s retro-branded, throwback fanny pack loaded with yummy snacks
  • A fun way to meet your daily recommended step count and burned calories
  • Hot coffee (served before the walk)
  • Refreshments (served at the end of the walk)
  • A chance to make new friends and memories on Boston’s Harborwalk!

Please be advised: The walk will include a mixture of sidewalks, paths, dirt trails, and potentially stairs that participants will need to navigate. Participants should be in good health and able to walk for several hours at a steady pace.

This walking group has space for 150 participants, including resilient children and well-behaved dogs on leashes.
