It's a nice little green park down by the water where you can sit down and relax for a bit. It's really close to everything and right by the harbour.

Beautiful park with a playground for children and enough grass for people to sit on. A lot of people running around and taking pictures.

It was a great day even after the storm the night before was something else, by time of wedding it was a... More

Participated in an all kids parade and watched a magic show. They also had face painting and lots of games to play. Wish there were more exhibits that were geared towards kids. There was one small craft table and one displaying instruments but kids had fun running around, watching boats, and playing in the playground area.

We really enjoyed the park, our rooms at the Marriott overlooked it so it was nice to go for walks where you can see the boats, people and the harbor. Close to Little Italy and the North End and the aquarium. Nice place to stop with children.

We really enjoyed just sitting in this park, relaxing and watching the world go by. There is not a great view of the harbor but you can still see some interesting activity on the river. This is a peaceful haven, a real gem which we visited twice during our stay in Boston.

Great place to stop anytime but especially nice to relax on a Sunday. Read the paper, watch the planes take off from Logan airport, watch the boats and the simmering water. Nearby is the Aquarium.A short walk will take to to Boston's North End where you can enjoy Italian food, stop for an espresso or drink. Or you can stay... More

Located between Long Wharf (aquarium area) and the North End, it is a nice spot on the water. Many people walk their dogs or take their children here on a nice day. It is a nice place to begin a walk along the ocean (head towards the North End). The water taxi (part of the T) stops here.

It may be a bit hard to find, but this is a hidden gem well worth seeing. Look for i down by the waterfront area in the area outside of Faneiul (sp?) Hall Marketplace.
