Bremen Street Park
Bremen Street Park, East Boston, MA
Once a Park n’ Fly lot for Logan Airport, the 18.5 acre mitigation project is now a lively public green space beautifully maintained by Massport. As part of a Big Dig roadway project, Brown, Richardson + Rowe prepared the park’s final design including playgrounds, a large spray pool, open lawns, community gardens, an amphitheater, and the setting for the YMCA. With its elements laid out like “charms on a charm bracelet”, the park buffers adjacent neighborhoods from Logan Airport and the highway, while providing hitherto unavailable recreational opportunities and a beautifully maintained green space.
