Friends of Fort Point Channel

Mission

 
 

Friends of Fort Point Channel is a place-based non-profit organization committed to making the Fort Point Channel an exciting and welcoming destination for all of Boston’s residents, workforce and visitors. The Friend’s was established in 2004 as a result of the City of Boston BPDA’s award winning 2002 Fort Point Channel Watersheet Activation Plan. It was created in partnership with Channel landowners, nonprofit and cultural leaders, and residents as a dynamic vision of recreation, cultural activity and diverse year-round programming, which the Friends is responsible for overseeing and executing.

The Friend’s year round programming is free to the public, which is a new model for ensuring civic redevelopment. These programs include the Fort Point Festival, Business Community Meetings, Pumpkin Pageant, and Holiday Stroll. The Friends produces the annual South Boston Waterfront Guide, the only comprehensive source of information for area employers, residents, commuters and visitors alike, that encourages exploration of Fort Point.
