The "big dig" (taking down the raised central artery for traffic and placing the cars underground in a tunnel) was replace with the Greenway. This is no Central Park, and there is still traffic on both sides of the green lawns and trees, but it adds a pleasant and attractive atmosphere to the downtown district. Interesting art on occassion and... More

The carousel near the entrance to Quincy Market should not be missed. Adults and children can riff for $3, or just look at the beautiful animals for free.

I had noticed that it should be an easy walk from the T South Station to the New England Aquarium among other tourist spots, but was reluctant to try it, not knowing what the neighborhood is like. So we took the less scenic route of the making two T transfers to get to the aquarium. The Greenway is a beautiful... More

Beautiful place to walk and see the city. I was skeptical of the Big Dig but it was money extremely well spent.

stopped here on a hot summer evening while walking back to our hotel after dinner in the North End. our son had a blast playing in the fountain. it certainly not a destination ... but worth stopping by to eat your cannolis from Mikes Pastry while your kids played in the fountain. great little spot.

A great addition to the City.. GREEN GREEN GREEN! After the Big Dig, the city re-captured this wonderful open space.

A nice quiet place to stop and rest among the beautiful pink rose bushes. There aren't very many people who go into the garden. I loved that there were benches and it was quiet.

The Greenway has become one of Downtown's highlights. It is adorned with a number of public art projects and fountains, and there are plenty of excellent food trucks too. Nearby are many restaurants and, in all events, there are plenty of places to sit and eat and relax. The carousel is a must-it is remarkably beautiful.

This park is in the heart of the city, and has some of the best views of the area that you'll find. There's beautiful manicured lawns and landscaped gardens, with water features, hammocks and sculptures to make your stay in the park an enjoyable one.

where the Central Artery used to be . . . now the highways and cars have been sacrificed for agriculture. It's not the High Line, but parts of it will remind you of the High Line. And the new sculpture hanging between the Intercontinental hotel and the office building across the Greenway from it (called "As If It Were Already... More
