One of the newest parks in south Boston’s Seaport district is Fan Pier Public Green. It’s a privately-owned space, open to public use, which overlooks Boston Harbor. The park consists of a large open lawn area which is bounded by walkways on three sides. A wedge-shaped boardwalk runs along the northwest edge of the green, perpendicular to the waterfront – an enjoyable place to sit in the shade of trees and view the harbor on a warm summer day. Also, a boardwalk adjacent to the water connects the park to Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art.
