2019 Year in Review

As our 19th year as an organization comes to a close, we’re reflecting on the incredible things we accomplished together last year. The numbers speak for themselves: Read our 2019 Year in Review. 

Lasting Esplanade Arbor Fund (L.E.A.F.)

In fall 2019, we planted the first 20 trees of our Lasting Esplanade Arbor Fund (L.E.A.F.) project. These are only 20 of the several hundred trees that the Esplanade Association will plant as part of the L.E.A.F. project, which will also include several plantings in spring 2020.

These tree-planting efforts are made possible by the Esplanade Association in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, and a host of L.E.A.F. donors and partner organizations!

What We Do

The Esplanade Association is a privately-funded nonprofit organization that works to revitalize and enhance the Charles River Esplanade, sustain its natural green space, and build community in the park by providing educational, cultural, and recreational programs for everyone.

Working in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Esplanade Association is dedicated to improving the experiences of the millions of visitors who enjoy Boston’s iconic riverside park.
