There's so much to see and do along the Greenway that it's almost difficult to address in one review. At the entrance to the North End (near Hanover St.) there's a terrific fountain for children to play in and where tourists can cool their road-weary feet in warm weather. There are entire day's worth of scenic vistas, but for our... More

I had a great time walking along the Greenway from the North End to Chinatown. Make sure to check out the farmers market and food trucks.

We hadn't been to Boston since the big dig was finished until recently. We wanted to do some of the gardens but also see the harbor area, north end and area around The Qunicy Market. What we didn't expect was a beautiful greenway running through the city and providing access to everything in the dontown area. The various parks, gardens,... More

Just went to see the new carousel on the Greenway. It is a beauty. The animals are all native to the state and were carved by a local artist. They are really exceptionally beautiful. The Greenway itself is a lovely, long meandering park with interesting fountains, comfortable benches and pretty flowers and plantings. A definite must see for visitors and... More

This park along the waterfront, near the North End is a little oasis in the middle of the busy city. We didn't spend as much time walking through the middle of it as around the outside, but still it was highly enjoyable. Lots of beautiful flowers, plus the 104 rose bushes in Rose Kennedy's honor. There were also some lovely... More

We explored the greenway while on a food four and loved it! It is a great way to bring green space into the city! I think it's a must travel through area when touring the city. Since we were on a food tour we enjoyed several of the food trucks along the way. Check them out! It was so much... More

When the big Dig was proposed, we were all told that a special park area would be built over the tunnel. DSo fare - there is very little "special" in it.

Came here in summer 2011 with my kids. Really lovely day, lots of kites flying, kids playing in fountains. At night the various fixtures light up. Right near the New England Aquarium, which is great for kids, and if the Aquarium is crowded, this is a great place to hang out for a bit.

The old artery is gone, and it was an ugly mess. Today, the Greenway snakes its away along Boston's waterfront, presenting a different view and artistic beauty at each turn. Start out near Chinatown and walk thru the produce gardens that are overshadowed by a giant print. Heading north, there are sculptures, gardens and a dancing fountain full of laughing... More
