The Esplanade: Past, Present and Future Understanding the rich history of the Esplanade, and those who worked throughout the decades to make this linear park a reality, will deepen one’s appreciation and value of our landmarked park today. Learn the stories of Olmstead, Eliot, the Storrow’s and Shurcliffe; how the Hatch Shell got its name and the current role the Esplanade Association plays to maintain the rich history of the park while at the same time, keeping it as relevant for today as it was when it was first established over 100 years ago.

As the official public/private partner of the Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Esplanade Association’s mission is to enhance, maintain and program the park for a growing and diverse audience of park enthusiasts! We hope you will join us for an evening stroll to learn a little bit about more about the extraordinary history of the Esplanade; what’s happening in the park today, and a vision for the future.
