Underground at Ink Block is the successful transformation of an 8-acre underpass located between Boston’s South End and South Boston neighborhoods into an active urban park, cultural attraction and parking amenity.
The park opens to the public on Saturday, September 9, 2017 with a full day of programming and events including the Underground Mural Project powered by Reebok in partnership with National Development.

The event includes the Loco Beer Garden in partnership with Sierra Nevada, DJ’s Gucci Vuitton & Braun Dapper spinning hip hop, house, funk and soul, plus Epic ping pong, lawn games, activities for children & pets, food trucks and more.
