Shades Under the Zakim - Boston
This beautiful light sculpture park is located right underneath the Leonard P Zakim Bridge in Charlestown's Paul Revere Park.
Located where the Charles meets the Inner Harbor, the five-acre Paul Revere Park extends from the North Washington Street Bridge upstream to the new Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge. The park features a large, grassy oval, a great place for ball throwing, with a stage for performances and a large, fenced-in playground for toddlers and older children. Signage and interpretive features make this a user-friendly park. A pier overlooking Boston Harbor with fish cleaning stations makes this a perfect spot for some friendly fishing. Natural vegetation and mosaic art can also be found in the park.
Paul Revere Park is one of the new parks along the Charles River being developed as mitigation for the river crossing of the Central Artery/Tunnel Project. When completed in 2007, these parks will include more than 40 acres of new public space with over 7 miles of bicycle, pedestrian, and ADA-accessible pathways. This significant addition to the Charles River Reservation System will serve to "link the river to the sea" when the new parks are completed.
