    TEAM ESPLANADE raised funds to support:

    (1) Free programming for the community, including bringing urban day camps for children from throughout Boston to the park for active fun, hosting one of Boston’s largest outdoor free fitness series, and hosting other free events and activities throughout the year

    (2) The implementation of a plan to sustainably invest in the long-term health of the park’s 1,700 trees, which provide shade and clean air for thousands of runners a day!

    (3) Outreach to bring diverse audiences to the park to enjoy the opportunities for active recreation, free programming, and spaces for quiet contemplation away from the bustle of the city
