Get Out to the Park and Volunteer!
It takes a lot to keep the park running. The Esplanade Association works in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation to welcome thousands of volunteers, like you, to the park each year. Your combine efforts are equal to the work of more than 4 full-time staff!
We rely heavily on volunteers to make the park cleaner, safer, and more beautiful for you and for the millions of users that visit the park each year. In addition to helping with park maintenance, the Association recruits volunteers to help run park programs, help with office tasks, and to help with special events.
Whats Happening Now
