Bag Checks and No Parking Regulations Will Be In Force

BOSTON- July 15, 2013-  The Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s concert series in front of the Hatch Shell will have enhanced security in place this year.  The DCR and State Police will create 4 entrances to the site.  One will be for staff only.  One will service people coming to the Esplanade from the Charles Street Subway Station and the other two will provide access for people coming over the Arthur Fiedler Bridge from the direction of Arlington Street.  All audience members will need to go through a bag check.  An Express Line will be available for people with no bags.


The DCR and State Police will not allow the following items: coolers with wheels, glass containers, alcohol, firearms, or grills.

There will be no parking on Storrow Drive.  


Public parking is available at the Boston Common Garage or the Charles Circle LAZ Parking lot next to Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary.


The drop off point for people with disabilities will be a curb cut off Storrow Drive behind the Hatch Shell.


“We thank the public for their patience as the state implements these new rules,” said Harron Ellenson, Executive Director of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra.

What is not allowed on the esplanade: coolers on wheels, glass containers or cans, only clear sealed containers holding less than half a gallon are permitted, no firearms weapons sharp objects or fireworks, no grilling/propane tanks open flames
