Adults (and kids) of Boston officially have a new playground!  Lawn on D, which opened last August, provides a “next-generation park” to Bostonians and visitors.  This three-acre lot adjacent to the BCEC hosts weekly live music performances, art installations and lawn games in an effort to bolster civic engagement and foster creativity in South Boston.  Boy, have they been successful!  The outdoor space can fit 3,000 guests for events from Spring through Fall and has definitely been a popular destination.

Summer To Do BCEC South Boston

With only 21 days left of Summer, Lawn on D is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the last few weeks of warm weather.  The space hosts a rotating list of Boston’s best food trucks on a weekly basis, offers Friday “lunch breaks” featuring Berklee College musicians and recently launched “Sport’s Sundays”, where visitors can cheer on the Red Sox under The Tent!  The venue also presents a wide array of signature events designed to entertain and delight.  This fall, locals can attend a music festival, kids day or pumpkin fest – all for free!

The Lawn on D is open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm daily through early October.  For more information or to plan your visit, head to!
