History[edit]

The Boston Harbor Association was formed in 1973 by the League of Women Voters and the Boston Shipping Association.[1]

HarborWalk[edit]

The Boston HarborWalk is a 46.9 mile public walkway that runs along the shore of Boston Harbor through Boston's six waterfront neighborhoods. The HarborWalk provides waterfront access to the public, and is accompanied by amenities such as cafés, parks, and seating areas. City and state regulations require new developments in Boston to be set back from the edge of the harbor. The HarborWalk was constructed as a way to both follow the building regulations and provide a pedestrian path for sightseeing and commerce.[2]
