The Walk for Change takes place at DCR’s Constitution Beach in East Boston.
DCR’s Constitution Beach is conveniently located a short two-minute walk from the Orient Heights Blue Line T stop. Volunteers will be visible to direct you to the park from there. Additionally, a police detail will ensure you can safely cross the street.
If you live nearby, you may find using a ride share most convenient.
Please use the Orient Heights T station as your pick-up/drop-off point to ensure a safe place for your driver to stop.
Free parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis at the Orient Heights MBTA parking lot located at 99 St. Edward Road, East Boston. This lot is a short walk from Constitution Beach.
If the Orient Heights lot is filled, participants will be directed to a secondary lot at Suffolk Downs station.
Volunteers and signage will be present to assist participants in getting to Constitution Beach from the respective parking lots.
Limited street parking may be available, but we strongly encourage participants to take the T, use a ride share, or park in the MBTA lots.
NOTE: The lot adjacent to the park is open only to Walk event staff, vendors, and attendees needing ADA-accessible parking. If you require ADA-accessible parking, you may park in the main lot at Constitution Beach. Please use 199 Coleridge Street, East Boston as the address to access the parking lot.
