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

If you have not treated yourself to a stroll along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway - what are you waiting for? Viewed in summer you will see flourishing gardens, children playing in fountains, hear live music - and if you are lucky, your date will take you on a carousel ride! We just strolled it again this past week -... More

The Greenway is very much a work in progress. There are still sections that are largely empty, though green. But this is a pleasant area to walk along, and some of the attractions-particularly the carousel and the fountains-are quite nice. There are also a number of very good good trucks on the Greenway during the week. In all events, it... More

Small but very nice. Lovely roses, the scent of fresh roses welcome you to a small green space and rose garden. Variety of rose bushes. By Christopher Columbus park, close to North Market. Nice fountain. Close to restaurants. Enjoy some time sitting on a bench surrounded by roses.
