The Charlestown Navy Yard mostly consists of flat asphalt. There are some railroad tracks embedded into the asphalt that cause little bumps in the road. The concerts are mostly held on grassy areas, which may be difficult for individuals with mobility issues. 

As this is a concert series, the music may be loud for individuals close to the speakers.
