The 800-pound bronze statue of Bobby Orr now has a new view of Boston.

After spending about six years on the western side of TD Garden, crews on Saturday moved the statue of the Bruins legend to Portal Park on the eastern side off Causeway Street.

The statue’s relocation comes as TD Garden owner Delaware North continues work on “The Hub on Causeway” project, which will add a new complex on Causeway Street in front of TD Garden and North Station. The first phase, scheduled to open in late 2018, will include a grocery store, a 15-screen movie theater, office space, underground parking, and eventually a residential tower.


The statue of Orr illustrates his celebratory leap through the air after the Bruins won the 1970 Stanley Cup.
