Boston Harbor Islands Anniversary

Join us in celebrating two special anniversaries of the Boston Harbor Islands park and Partnership!

Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park invites you to join us in celebrating a legacy of learning, discovery, and partnership!

2021 marked the beginning of a special Anniversary year at the Boston Harbor Islands: one that celebrates 50 years since the Boston Harbor Islands entered the State Park system, and 25 years since the establishment of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park – its national significance signed into law as part of the National Parks and Public Lands Management Act of 1996.

The Boston Harbor Islands rely on the power of partnership to create exceptional park spaces, preserve our most cherished resources, and inspire unforgettable experiences. Eleven different agencies and organizations make up the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership, which collectively owns and operates this unique urban park.

To celebrate the park anniversaries, the Boston Harbor Islands Partnership welcomes everyone to visit the park, learn about the islands’ rich history and heritage, and participate in special anniversary programming. Scroll down to see just a few of the ways visitors are invited to explore and learn about Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park.
