Discover Castle Island Stories
September 30 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join Friends of the Boston Harborwalk to celebrate eight new signs at Castle Island and acknowledge all who made them possible. Play “Hunting for Answers”—a treasure hunt with prizes. Enjoy refreshments. We’ll meet near the entrance to Fort Independence for a short speaking program to begin.
The signs at Castle Island and around Pleasure Bay were created by members of the Friends of the Boston Harborwalk, working in partnership with the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Grant funding from Boston’s Community Preservation Act paid for manufacture and installation. The new signs provide context for the history and ecology of this unique stretch of South Boston’s waterfront.
The Friends of the Boston Harborwalk is a volunteer group affiliated with Boston Harbor Now. The group meets monthly to promote awareness, public enjoyment and local stewardship of Boston’s 43-mile Harborwalk. For more information on joining the group, please contact Mike Manning, chair, at [email protected].
