Mayor Martin J. Walsh and City of Boston officials are seeking public input for a planned renovation of Boston City Hall Plaza, starting with Phase I.
The seven-acre plaza is one of the City’s largest civic spaces. For the last five decades, it has hosted events ranging from sports celebrations and political rallies to seasonal cultural festivals, according to the project’s website.
Mayor Walsh envisions City Hall Plaza to be a more accessible, sustainable, and comfortable shared space for all Bostonians and visitors. “Boston’s City Hall Plaza is a space visited by thousands of Boston residents each and every day,” he said. “This renovation will turn our seven-acre space into a welcoming, accessible space for all, featuring new civic spaces for events to areas for families to enjoy together. Creating a new People’s Plaza will help us achieve our goals of making one of Boston’s most-used public spaces better for all residents.”
