    Join us for a summer beach celebration in Central Park!

    The beach is back and will stay for the duration of the school break. Anyone can use the beach for free during the park's opening hours. This is a great way to spend some quality time with friends and family while the children play, all without leaving Boston town.

    The popular beach area is offering a host of activities for all ages, most of which are free:
