About Armenian Heritage Park on the Greenway
Armenian Heritage Park is a gift to the City of Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts from Armenian-Americans. Together, we welcome all to celebrate the immigrant experience. Our park graces the public space with design features to engage all ages:
The Abstract Sculpture, a split dodecahedron, commemorates the immigrant experience. Annually, the Sculpture is reconfigured, symbolic of all who were pulled apart from their country of origin and came to these Massachusetts shores, establishing themselves in new and different ways. The Sculpture sits atop a Reflecting Pool; its waters wash over its sides and re-emerge as a single jet of water at the Labyrinth's center. The Sculpture is dedicated to lives lost during the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923 and all genocides that have followed.
A Labyrinth, a circular winding path paved in grass and inlaid stone, celebrates life's journey. A single jet of water marks its center, representing hope and rebirth. Art, Science, Service and Commerce are etched around its circle in tribute to contributions made to American life and culture. This is the only Labyrinth on public land in the Northeast.
Armenian Heritage Park and its Abstract Sculpture and Labyrinth are recognized as Public Art.
The Park's Endowed Funds supports the annual Reconfiguration of the Abstract Sculpture, the Najarian Lecture on Human Rights at Faneuil Hall and the Park's ongoing care and maintenance. Armenian Heritage Park on the Greenway is between Faneuil Hall Marketplace and Christopher Columbus Park at the crossroads of resident, business and tourist footpaths.
Friends of Armenian Heritage Park is open to all with an interest in supporting the programs of the Park. To receive further information, please send us an email - click here.
