Massport opens Bremen Street Dog Park

BOSTON – The dog days of summer may technically be over, but they have only just begun in East Boston. On Monday, September 14, Massport officially opened the 22,655-square-foot Bremen Street Dog Park at the corner of Bremen and Porter Streets.

The new Bremen Street Park welcomes dogs of all sizes and their human companions for canine play, recreation and exercise, and was developed by Massport at the request of the community.

Currently, Massport owns or manages more than 33 acres of green space in East Boston including Piers Park, Bremen Street Park and airport edge buffers like Neptune Road which opened earlier this summer.

During the past 10 years, Massport has invested $50 million to develop and maintain green space in East Boston.

The Bremen Street Dog Park, which has a surface of crushed stone, is divided into a nearly 17,000-square-foot area for all dogs and a nearly 5,500-square-foot area for smaller dogs. There is a 300-square foot entrance corral to help keep dogs from accidentally escaping while other dogs are leashed and unleashed.

The $250,000 project features six pieces of dog agility equipment, two pet waste stations to facilitate immediate clean-up and disposal, and five benches for people to watch their dogs at play. The park also has two dual water fountains, for the dogs and for people.

Several local officials, including MA Chief Secretary Carlo Basile, State Senator Anthony Petruccelli, State Representative Adrian Madaro, and Boston City Councilor Sal Lamattina came together with community leaders East Boston Piers PAC president Bob Strelitz and MassPAWS president April Abenza, to champion the development of the dog park.

“Massport was delighted to work with community leaders and residents to develop this great new addition to East Boston green space. Whenever we have the opportunity to promote neighborhood recreation and a commitment to the environment, it’s a win-win,” said Massport CEO Thomas P. Glynn, adding. “In this case, our neighbors include those with four legs.”

“Pets are important companions,” said Councilor Lamattina. “The dog park at Bremen Street Park is another great resource to bring community together and increase public safety."

“We knew it was needed, what has surprised me has been who has been using it,” said April Abenza, MassPAWS president. “Everyone from young adults to seniors in their late 80s, it's a great place to interact with neighbors new and old.”
