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.

We walked by this Greenway on a hot August Day. There are several water sprays shooting into the air and green grass in an island of concrete. A respite on the Freedom Trail but not a destination.

The Carousel, beautiful designed & created by a family member is a must see/visit/ride. Parking nearby, tons of shopping & eateries for all ages. Take the opportunity - all season fun.

Having lived in Boston for 20 years but been on the west coast for the last 17, I love to come back to Boston to see new things and my old haunts too. I have not been here since this was built so I welcomed the opportunity to check it out. Certainly much better than the old SE Expressway that... More

I live in the city and often bring visitors straight to the Greenway when they come to Boston! It makes for easy walking in the heart of the city, and it's perfect for stopping off for food in the North End, or shopping, or seeing the fantastic garden and fountains along the way.

Every time I walk the Greenway I'm always pleasantly surprised by something new - from food trucks, art installations and concerts to beautiful flowers and trees. I love the rotating mural in Dewey Square and I always recommend a ride the Carousel to all of my friends visiting from out of town (or nearby!) The park has really changed Boston's... More

The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway is a beautiful 1.5-mile long park that runs through the heart of Boston and sits atop a highway buried underground by the famed Big Dig. It is one of the only organically maintained public parks in the country and boasts beautiful horticultural throughout. There are wonderful activities all over the Greenway, and I have spent...

The Greenway is terrific. We love to start at one end and walk through the gardens, hitting attractions along its length. Lunch in the North End, play in the fountains, ride the Carousel, see the seals outside the Aquarium, grab a snack from a food truck, check out the latest mural across from South Station, dinner in Chinatown. We often... More
