Martin’s Park at the Smith Family Waterfront

May 26th, 2016

The Richard and Susan Smith Family Foundation is pleased to announce that it has made a $3 million commitment toward the construction of a park along Fort Point Channel in honor of Martin W. Richard, the youngest victim of the Boston Marathon bombings.

“We are deeply honored to help bring this gift of a world-class park to Boston in memory of Martin Richard. Martin’s Park at the Smith Family Waterfront will transform an underutilized public space into a vibrant, universally accessible park and playground that we hope will delight children and families for generations to come.” -Susan Smith, Co-Chair
