Norman B. Leventhal Park at Post Office Square illustrates what can happen when a visionary idea is realized through excellent design. Enormously popular from the day it opened, this 1.7-acre park is often credited with jump-starting Boston’s downtown revival. Built on the roof of a 7-level underground garage, it continues to be a model of public-private cooperation and stands as an exemplar of contemporary design in harmony with its urban surroundings. The Park at Post Office Square has become a model for center city parks in the 21st century, cited by designers, public advocates, municipal officials and educators, alike.
