Before there was a park, the Friends of City Square Park was formed as a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization with the goal of creating a green space for Charlestown. The dream was realized at the 1996 ground-breaking. City Square Park was established in 1996 at the exact site where the beginnings of Charlestown took root in 1629. Over the past three centuries the landscape of City Square and Charlestown at large have gone through dramatic changes. Today, the park acts as a testimony to Charlestown’s maturation, as a beacon for visitors to the city, and as a symbol of civic pride for the city. The park includes more than 70 separate species of trees, shrubs, perennial flowers, ground coverings and grasses. The site’s sophisticated design elements, gas lights, meandering paths and grassy areas combine to interpret the park’s historic past in a modern fashion. As it has since Charlestown’s conception, City Square Park proudly serves as "The Gateway To Boston".
