National Parks of Boston

The National Parks of Boston is a constellation of three National Park Service sites – Boston National Historical Park, Boston African American National Historic Site and Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park – collectively managed by a general superintendent. Established by individual legislation and designated purposes, the three units have come together as a unified, relevant and collaborative organizational structure. More commonly, you may know us as the Bunker Hill Monument, Charlestown Navy Yard and Dorchester Heights or our partnerships along Boston’s “Trails to Freedom” or our partnership on the Boston Harbor Islands. You may also know us from the Park Ranger uniform, but we also employ a wide variety of employees from across varied career fields. No matter what your interests or background, you’ll likely find something for you at the National Parks of Boston.
