Swings aren’t just for children anymore at the Lawn on D. People of all ages are invited to rediscover their inner child on vibrant, colorful swings.

The Lawn on D is an experimental outdoor interactive space. It is the first of its kind in Boston. Located on D Street, next to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, this iconic 2.7-acre area provides fun for all ages.
