How a 130-year-old land conservation organization began planning an iconic waterfront destination on Boston’s harbor

The Trustees of Reservations (The Trustees) is the nation’s first preservation and conservation organization, founded in Boston in 1891 out of a concern for dwindling public space. Today the non-profit is proud to protect and steward 120 special places across the state, sites ranging from barrier beaches and historic homes to working farms and urban gardens—including 56 in the City of Boston. Its Boston Waterfront Initiative, One Waterfront, is building on those deep and growing roots in Boston with a mission to create and manage a series of resilient and welcoming parks along the City’s vulnerable harbor. After receiving official site developer designation from the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) late last year, One Waterfront is working to transform a dilapidated pier in East Boston into a welcoming waterfront destination, Piers Park III. Collaborating closely with the community and drawing on The Trustees’ long history of expertise in public open space management, One Waterfront and world-renowned landscape architect Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. will create an iconic new park, free and open to all. 

(Hosted by One Waterfront, this free event is part of Boston Design Week and supported by presenting sponsor TD Bank through the TD Ready Commitment  ( )   To learn more about Piers Park III.
