I didn't know there was so much green space Boston! The Greenway is absolutely beautiful! The many different plants and views of the city made it the best walk I could have imagined. There were so many sculptures and different pieces of art to see while walking as well as some awesome architecture.

One of my favorite lunch spots, also a great, scenic stroll. Places to sit and smell the roses (among many other flowers you'll find on the path). A great way to traverse downtown.

From time to time I have read reviews that the Rose Kennedy Greenway, a pedestrian's verdant paradise, sandwiched between ever so busy city thorough fares, is underdeveloped and therefore under-used. Hello, people, do you not understand what the Greenway is all about? From one end to the other - and it does go on for quite a distance - the... More

If you are touring Boston this summer and are downtown, swing by the Greenway to see the huge hanging sculpture that now traverses the Greenway. It’s worth a detour both during the day and at night when it’s lit up. If you like to take pictures, you may get a really awesome shot, especially if you can get a long... More

Don't miss the carousel in Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Park. Kids can ride carousel lobsters, whales, owls and foxes.

What a superb parkspace the Rose Kennedy Greenway is growing into right on the Boston Waterfront, within minutes from downtown - The Conservancy has overcome many structural obstacles by imaginative plantings, interesting selection of perennials, trees, bushes, superb labelling, the installation of whimsical and thoughtful permanent sculptures, playful and kids friendly waterart, the Carousel, and other colorful choices that engage...

Having the Rose Kennedy Greenway with its walking paths, play fountains, gardens, unique carousel, public art and programming is like having a rich strip of Central Park along Boston's waterfront! Don't miss it when you visit the North End, the Aquarium or the Children's Museum!

The Greenway is such a wonderful addition to the City of Boston landscape. I use it as a recreational site and as a beautiful path between destinations in the City. Everyone has their favorite part - for me, the best is the area between the North End and Haymarket. Sitting out reminds me of how in the 1960's and 1970's... More

This is a beautiful open space that runs along the waterfront and is 1/2 block from the water at any given time. There are interactive water fountains, a merry go round, food trucks and places to soak in the sun. A wonderful green space in the center of the city. The area used to be covered by a raised highway... More

Created by the Big Dig, when the eyesore highway through the middle of Boston was moved underground, this linear park goes from one end of Boston to the other. Jumping-water fountains are great for kids to run through, and you can stop off in the North End or Chinatown for lunch.
