The non-profit Esplanade Association has released a long-term plan to revitalize the famous parkway along the Charles River in Boston.

They have some cool ideas, including building a new year-round café where there’s now a kind of honky-tonk type shop near the Hatch Shell. They also envision replacing and/or expanding the Authur Fiedler Footbridge with a more wide gateway into the park.

Some of the ideas we doubt will ever happen, such as a new Ferris Wheel where there’s now a parking garage next to the Museum of Science. But all in all, it looks like a very interesting and promising vision for the Esplanade.
