The Lawn on D is a park and playground oasis for children and adults near the Boston convention center.
The park features art installations, live music, very cool LED illuminated circular (think glowing) swings, inflatable maze and so much more. The park attracts many families in the area due to its cool features.
Visitors are welcome to play popular backyard games like cornhole, ping pong, bocce, Jenga and more. Game equipment for other activities is available during the public lawn hours.
New for 2023 - Pickleball! Courts are brand new and are FREE and available whenever The Lawn is open to the public. [Thur 3pm - 8pm | Fri, Sat & Sun 12:00pm - 8:00pm]
Please take note of the calendar for open play times (first come, first serve). When concessions are open and lawn games are out, we rely on an honor-system reservation system for use of the courts.
The lawn on D is open on both weekdays and weekends, unless it has been booked for a private event. When the venue is not booked, you can often find public events that range from live music & lawn games to food festivals.
Pets are not permitted, so make sure to leave Fido at home.
