The Charles River Esplanade of Boston, Massachusetts, is a state-owned park. The Esplanade was dedicated as the Boston Embankment in 1910. The Embankment was created as part of the construction of the 1910 Charles River Dam (today the site of the Museum of Science). The parkland was criticized for its lack of shade trees, refreshment stands, recreation facilities, transportation utility, and visitors. It extended to Charlesgate (upstream of the Harvard Bridge) and connected with Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace. To address criticism, trees, a refreshment pavilion, and concerts were brought to the park.
