Located in the heart of the city now lays the perfect spot for a summertime swim…and i’m not talking about the Civic Pool.

The nearby boardwalk is also now open to the public, extending from the beach all the way down to Henry Rolland Park at the north end of Commonwealth Avenue Bridge.


Nearby parklands are still under construction for now but are due to be completed next year.
