Having the Rose Kennedy Greenway with its walking paths, play fountains, gardens, unique carousel, public art and programming is like having a rich strip of Central Park along Boston's waterfront! Don't miss it when you visit the North End, the Aquarium or the Children's Museum!

The Greenway is such a wonderful addition to the City of Boston landscape. I use it as a recreational site and as a beautiful path between destinations in the City. Everyone has their favorite part - for me, the best is the area between the North End and Haymarket. Sitting out reminds me of how in the 1960's and 1970's... More

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
