Flanked between Everett and Revere, Chelsea is the smallest city in Massachusetts in regards to area. Historically, Chelsea was known for being regarded as a working-class community. However, since the early 2000’s Chelsea has seen some great diversity for all walks of life with many new homes being built that cater to young families and professionals. Many loft-style developments and condominiums have been erected for housing options along with office, retail and restaurants emerging.
Bordered by three sides of water, Chelsea is a peninsula that despite its size has many different sections. One of the most prominent areas is that of Admiral’s Hill. Admirals Hill is an 80+ acre complex that was an active Navy Yard until 1974 and sits atop a point of land between the Mystic River and Island End River. The slopes of the hill are covered by residential development enjoying expansive views. On the south slope of the hill is the site of the historic Naval Hospital, with several brick and granite structures that have been converted to condominiums. Between the Naval Hospital and the shoreline is the DCR.s Mary O’Malley Park, approximately 23+ acres. This park is a major resource for the City, and is composed of broad sweeping expanses of grassy areas with picnic facilities, parking areas, a pier, a children’s play park, tennis courts and a pedestrian and bicycle path.
Mary O’Malley Memorial Park: A 23+ acre park on Commandants Way along Admirals Hill’s waterfront; has open grassy space, picnic tables, pavilions, tennis courts, benches, swings, play structures, a pier and a walkway by the river, and off street parking spaces. State property, this park is not city-permitted. The park has spectacular views of the Boston & Charlestown skylines as well as a view down Boston Harbor. In July, the Apollanaire Theater does a , free, two week performance of a play or musical in the Park; September is the Annual Kite Festival where the Friends of Mary O’Malley Park provide 100 kites, juices & water, and snacks free of charge to all who come.
All residents of Chelsea benefit from the diverse offerings of housing, retail and ease of access into the city of Boston.
