  • By car from Boston and Route 93:
    1. Take the Callahan tunnel toward Logan Airport (Rt 1A) — you do NOT pay a toll. Stay to the right lane in the tunnel.
    2. Exit the tunnel in the right lane and take an immediate right at the “Local Exit.”
      (You must take the LOCAL exit off the tunnel or you will be at the airport and driving in circles.)
    3. At Santarpio’s Pizza, go straight onto Porter Street (It’s actually a left and very quick right).
    4. Go over the bridge and take the first left at the lights. The park will be on your right.

    If you are using a GPS, program the unit for 141 Porter Street, East Boston, MA 02128.
