If you are looking for a fabulous way to stroll through gardens amongst the energy of the city, this is it. The greenway has changed the way Boston lives. The sprinklers that shoot up are fabulous for kids to safely play in. Bring a towel. Enjoy the Merry Go Round, and people watch, check out the sculptures. look around at... More

arrived on Saturday morning in time to walk through the vendors that were displaying and selling their home made goods. There is a water spout that shoot water for the children in the summer - watching them play in that area is such a joy!!

The Greenway is a strip in the north side of the city that came about with the reconfiguration of the road system. It offers a bit of green space and attractions as one ventures between Faniul Hall, The North End, Aquarium and Harbor. It's a huge improvement from the old green overpass, but is probably not quite meeting its potential.... More

Nice place to stroll along busy streets. The area is well taken care of and it gives a nice way to strol along your walk instead of just being on the sidewalk

Lovely example of what you can do with urban regeneration - in this case, using the space left when Th Big Dig moved the freeways underground. This linear park is a small oasis in the city, and a place where people can enjoy the short walk, sit in the sunshine, and take the children to play in the water on... More

Nice gem in the heart of Boston where you can sit and relax during a day of walking and touring the sights or to just get away from your daily routine. Beautiful area!

A beautiful walk! Green grass, flowers, sculptures, fountains, spray pools, places to sit and relax, festivals, marketplace, food trucks right in the heart of Boston. What else could you want?! You could walk a labyrinth or go for a carousel ride! Walking distance to Faneuil Hall, North End. It's a beautiful place even at night!

what is there not to love about the greenway?! open space, organic lawncare, splash pads, tables and seating, food trucks, open markets, art exhibitions. i love coming to the greenway and taking it all in. it is a chain of little gem greenspaces in the heart of boston that is not to be missed.
