Pier 5 Association was delighted to host a successful Pier 5 Earth Day on Saturday, April 23 from noon to 3:00 PM. Charlestown is one of Boston’s most at-risk neighborhoods to sea level rise, with one of the lowest open space and greenspaces. Pier 5 provides the opportunity for a Head of The Harbor Park that can be open to all for recreation, relaxation, and learning about our history and blue and green environment in a living classroom.
