Ink Underground Park in South End

The South End’s newest park, Ink Underground, which was initially scheduled to open at the start of summer now eyes an early fall opening.  Sergio and I walked through part of the park last weekend and snapped these photos to show you how cool this space really is.

The eight acre park reclaims previously unused space and creates a really cool public space that includes: 24-hour security, basketball court, dog park, public art walls, bike storage and 175 parking spaces.

The space extends east from Albany Street to Fort Point Channel and runs under twelve elevated lanes for interstate highway, I-93 and access roads to I-90. The park was designed with the intention of hosting art exhibitions and special events so once this opens in the fall look for a full list of events to introduce the new space to the communities it was designed for.

A boardwalk and bike path runs through the entire space (and actually includes a fairly spacious bike cage to lock bicycles. The idea behind the creation of the park is to  create a new, active connection between the South End and Southie.

  1. In your first photo on the left side it looks like someone has already tagged the side wall. Idiots.
