Presented by Stoss Landscape Urbanism & One Architecture & Urbanism

The Moakley Park Vision Plan, led by Stoss Landscape Urbanism (Stoss) and One Architecture & Urbanism (ONE) in partnership with the City of Boston Parks and Recreation Department and the Environment Department of the City of Boston, is a comprehensive long-term plan for an historic waterfront park in South Boston.

Originally intended to be a node in Frederick Law Olmsted’s partially realized Emerald Necklace plan, today the park faces a number of climate stresses, including repeat flooding and lack of effective drainage.

To aid in the development of a vision that pairs resilient infrastructural upgrades with improvements in recreational access and community-focused spaces, Stoss, ONE, and the City have led a number of community engagement sessions using innovative forms of “engagement by design,” allowing residents and stakeholders to participate directly in the design process.
