The Parks & Recreation Department provides residents and visitors with clean, green, safe, and accessible open space in 2,100 acres of park land throughout the city.
Take a tour of the winning gardens in Mayor Martin J. Walsh's Garden Contest using this interactive map. Selected from more than 130 applications, these gardens represent the efforts of Boston's green thumbs who landscaped, planted flowers, trees, and shrubs, and, in the process, helped beautify Boston’s neighborhoods. Now in its 19th year, the Mayor's Garden Contest is presented with a Grand Prize from JetBlue and media support provided by the Boston Herald.
The Boston Parks and Recreation Department offers free youth athletic programs, clinics, and camps in neighborhood parks and community centers citywide. Be sure to bookmark our Recreation Programs page where you will find announcements, calendar listings, applications, and updates on all we have to offer!
