Past President, The Boston Harbor Association
Women in Design Award of Excellence, 2015 winner
With the clean up of Boston Harbor, there has been renewed interest by the public to enjoy and have access to the waterfront. For more than two decades at The Boston Harbor Association, we promoted the creation of more than 80% of what will eventually be a 47-mile HarborWalk public access network in Boston’s six waterfront neighborhoods. Public amenities along the HarborWalk include public parks, seating areas, ADA-accessible walkways and boat docks, interpretive signage, public art, restrooms, ground floor retail, and free-of-charge binoculars.
