You will find the Dewey Square Park between Congress Street and Summer Street and Atlantic Avenue.
This park joins the major transportation hub of South Station to the Financial District. The park has gardens, lawn areas, and the adjacent plaza, which draw in commuters and nearby workers and residents.
Although the Dewey Square Park is one of the smallest on the Greenway, there are many events happening daily that attract both locals and tourists. With thousands of people working in the Financial District, this section of the Greenway allows for some time to relax and revel in the sun.
The tables, chairs, and popular food vendors have made Dewey Square Park a popular lunch destination. Especially in the summer and fall when the plaza features the Boston Public Market Association’s seasonal weekly farmer’s market.
The Dewey Square Park is easily accessible by Commuter Rail from South Station or Red Line subway from South Station.
The goal of the Dewey Demonstration Gardens is to create a space that is visually lively all year-round while providing an educational playground for sustainable, urban, gardening practices. We have pollinator plants to attract beneficial insects, unusual edible plants, a rain garden comprised of native plants of the Northeast and a dedicated area for urban composting. With this combination of green techniques, we’ve created a learning laboratory for our Green and Grow apprentices, interns and our visitors who enjoy the Greenway every day. Visit the Greenway blog to find out more about the pollinator garden, the raised edible garden, the rain garden and our urban composting area.
Our demonstration gardens include an area for teaching and learning. We are currently seeking programs for our big table which could include cooking and gardening demos or lectures and talks on food, gardening and the environment. If you are interested in conducting a program download our call.
