Gloucester Harborwalk

Gloucester, MA

This 1.5-mile path traversing the working waterfront, cultural sites and downtown commercial district in America’s oldest seaport comes alive through a series of 42 story markers and wayfinding maps that lead visitors around the path and help convey the rich artistic, industrial and historical heritage of the city. Connecting new, refurbished and existing public spaces, the Harborwalk provides access to Gloucester Harbor while highlighting the character of the place while respecting the gritty, authentic beauty. The experience is enhanced through a smartphone app that serves as a walking cinema.
