The Head of Boston Harbor
The Boston Naval Yard Pier 5 is the only fully open Harbor Walk location with unobstructed view sheds including the Charles and Mystic Rivers, Boston skyline, East Boston and the entire harbor all the way to the Harbor Islands.
Pier 5 Association is making extraordinary progress to reactivate this public property as an landmark waterfront national park providing healthful recreation, cultural events and historic views from the Head of Boston Harbor.
Adjacent piers include renown Pier 6 marina/restaurant to the North and the beloved Courageous Sailing Center city side. Neighboring National Treasure, the U.S.S. Constitution frigate is an international tourist attraction with over 350,000 visitors each year to learn and explore. One of Boston’s most visited museums.
