Wandered down to the waterfront from the Quincy Market area and stumbled upon this gem. Covered walkway. Beautiful fountain. Ample benches to relax on. A gorgeous view of the water.

Pretty view of the harbor with attractive landscaping and seating options. Very near several restaurants if you wish to eat in a park setting. We watched yoga in the park.
