Your Guide
JP Shadley, FASLA

Located between the Wharf District Parks and Dewey Square, the Fort Point Channel Parks and Urban Arboretum are among the most horticulturally intensive segments of the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway.

The gardens are infused with a carefully programmed planting design which creates seasonal interest throughout the year and responds to the request of local residents for spaces with a classic garden park-like feel.  

The parks were originally designed by Halvorson Design Partnership in association with the Massachusetts Horticultural Society, with additional subsequent planting design by Wolf Landscape Architecture.
