Massachusetts’ Trustees of Reservations are scouting sites in Boston’s Seaport, Fort Point, and East Boston areas for what the organization’s leader hopes will be a “jaw-dropping” park along Boston Harbor, according to an article on BostonGlobe.com.
The group has zeroed in on five locations and hired several of the nation’s leading landscape architects to design concepts for public release later this spring. No price tag has been outlined, but a project of this scale would likely cost tens of millions of dollars.
The 126-year-old nonprofit group owns about 27,000 acres of beaches, forests, and open space in Massachusetts, including Castle Hill and Crane Beach in Ipswich and World’s End in Hingham. But it doesn’t have a major property in Boston itself, said chief executive Barbara Erickson, where it has focused on small community gardens.
