Constitution Beach
Constitution Beach East Boston, MA
Constitution Beach is a 28-acre park located in Orient Heights, in an inlet off of Boston Harbor. Brown, Richardson + Rowe helped revitalize the beach as part of the Metropolitan District Commission’s "Back to the Beaches" Program. Our rehabilitation plan reflected community priorities, and created a seashore environment in the middle of the city. We designed a sea blue pedestrian bridge, moved the driveway inland, consolidated green space on the water side, designed a large playground, athletic facilities, shade structures, and picnic areas, and incorporated fast-growing shade trees, coarse grasses and beach perennials.
