Envisioning an Iconic Waterfront and Aquatic Park

Pier 5 is a public amenity that can be an iconic waterfront and aquatic park providing amazing city and open harbor views from this Head of the Harbor location; adjacent to the beloved Courageous Sailing Center; and across from the USS Constitution, our treasured historic and venerated frigate, which is an internationally known tourist attraction with an educational museum. 

Between September 8, 1939 when a limited national emergency was declared and the end of the War in 1945, the Boston Navy Yard launched 303 vessels and commissioned another 120 ships that were constructed at private yards. In addition, it overhauled 1108 vessels; another seventy-four underwent extensive conversion, and 3260 were repaired. This effort was critical to the Allied victory during World War II
