Boston Common

Boston, MA

Boston Parks Department

The Boston Common Parade Grounds is a visually and functionally important public lawn in Boston. The area, over both structure and fill, is intensely used on a daily basis as well as for major events. Pine & Swallow worked with the Boston Parks Department to analyze existing conditions and designed soil modifications to restore the lawn to better withstand the extraordinary level of use.
