The Wharf District Parks are the result of a greening project begun in 1990, when Copley Wolff Design Group undertook the renewal project for the one-mile, 23-acre stretch of land that used to be an elevated highway dissecting the city of Boston. The parks were designed to pay tribute to the wharf's historic contribution to the city's international role in immigration, commerce, trade, fishing and maritime industries.
