It is a great time of year to experience the Greenway with its wonderful plantings and landscaping and amazing playspaces for the whole family. Many free exhibits and programs are available not to mention the fabulous Eschelman net sculpture which is up until the fall. Other public art is available and it is truly a gift to all visitors of... More

We went to the Greenway when the temperature was over 90 degrees. It was the perfect place for two 5-year olds to keep cool, loving the spray fountains, and playing with other children in the city. We walked to a number of fountains and then skipped over to Quincy Market where they could enjoy a treat. The Greenway was a... More

I remember pre-Big Dig Boston, and with the Dig finally being completed several years ago, and then this beautiful addition being made to the city, which completely changes its character for the better, I can't say enough good things about the Greenway. A pleasant respite from the tourist crowds, and yet easy access back to said tourist attractions on either... More

We arrived by ferry from South Boston. This parkway is located right across from ferry ports. This park is an amazing place, given that it covers interstate highway traffic which flows now beneath it. Trees shade the paths and artists have installations that are designed for each place where they are located. The south end winds into Chinatown and the... More

Emerge from South Station and find a lovely park full of surprises as it winds through the city with harbor views on the right and skyscrapers on the left, - Well-planned gardens with butterfly-friendly native plants; interesting sculptures; delightful fountains provide something for all ages. And in mid-July, don't miss the breathtaking display of daylilies at the North Station end... More

Hard to imagine, what Boston looked like with the expressway. The greenway takes our breath away every time we go in town.

There were many exhibitions tied in with the reproduction of Lafayette's ship, L'Hermione. We enjoyed the fife and dumb band, the sea shanty singing, and the baroque dancing. On a "normal" day it seems as though it would be a wonderful place to walk and spend an afternoon.

Strolling with small children is a mixed blessing. On the one hand, there are many creative, chilfd-fascinating attractions. On the other hand, there are a lot of cars, some of whom have some challenges understanding the right-of-way.

This is a lovely place to walk and there are spots where the little ones can run on the grass and burn off some energy. It's a nice way to take a break from shopping, tourist attractions and the like - plus it is so close to everything that once you're refreshed you can get right back into other activities.

Kudos to those who thought of the big dig, and decided to create this urban park. I had a wonderful stroll through the green grass, flowers and trees. Enjoyed the artwork and watching the people having a rest. At lunchtime the food trucks had long lines of people waiting to grab a bite. What a wonderful place.
