Join us for Waterfront Week!


Our Waterfront program team is revving up in preparation for March 5 to March 9 to celebrate all things waterfront and we hope you can join us! This series of events will reveal the newest design progress, share an insider’s look at how to build a seawall and get us all talking about opportunities for art, design and play on the waterfront and beyond.

Here’s a snapshot of what’s happening for Waterfront Week!
