More side walk than green. Yes nice open space. But do not call it a greenway. The green way of boston is the emerald necklace. Visit the green parts of Boston. The greenway is not one of them.

My girlfriend and I walked the Freedom Trail, and the trail cuts through this linear city park at about the midpoint of the trail. It makes for a nice break in the otherwise urban landscape. It is probably gorgeous in the spring and summer when the flowers are blooming, but even in winter it was a wonderful place to stop... More

What an exciting use of public space. Every time we are in town, no matter how cold, we walk though the Greenway. The public art is incredible-- the hammocks and other innovative seating encourage people to stop and relax in the middle of the city. In the summer, it's great with kids-- sprinkler parks abound throughout, and food trucks line... More

This is a great spot for a weekend stroll. Lots of beautiful flowers and great people watching. They also have events here so check the local listings.

To think that there used to be a raised highway that ran through downtown Boston. It's now been placed underground and Rose Kennedy Greenway has taken its place...such a welcomed change.

We enjoyed this nice green space in the middle of the city. What we loved the most were the large swings with small lights shining down feeling like we were under the stars at night.

Still under the process of being built by the time it is finished it will be a fitting tribute to the Kennedy matriach. Very near where Rose was born North End, it is a nice break in the area that s being built near a huge motorway in Boston. Sure will be lovely when finished

Go there in summer and they have lots of things to see. People watching is great, Some water spouts that the kids will enjoy on hot days. No place to hide from the sun though.

We walked along the greenway to get back to our hotel from dinner. It was magical and felt totally safe even late at night. Nice to enjoy the city in the evening.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
