National parks open to visitors in Boston post-shutdown

January 26, 2019 - 2:06 PM

BOSTON - The National Park Service says it is reopening parks in Boston, now that a partial government shutdown has come to an end.

The park service said Saturday that operations will be limited at Boston National Historical Park, Boston African American National Historic Site and the Boston Harbor Islands State and National Park through Sunday, but the parks should be running on their regular winter schedule beginning Monday.

President Donald Trump signed a short-term deal Friday to end the partial government shutdown. Park rangers were once again greeting visitors at some national parks across the United States on Saturday.

National Parks of Boston General Superintendent Michael Creasey says park staffers are grateful for all of the support that was offered to them and their families during the shutdown.
