We went there with loads of others to watch the fire works on New Years eve. They had nice blue and white lights to brigthen up the over head awnings. It's nice in the summer when it's a bit more warmer.

I strolled through the park on a Saturday afternoon of a long weekend on a lovely sunny day. There were a lot of people around enjoying the glorious weather and the greenery by the harbor. There were bands and buskers, food stalls and lots of things to see and do. All this and next to the lovely harbor water view... More

Between Quincy and the Boston Harbor, I crossed the Christoper Columbus Park. A perfect day out for kids or for a romantic walk, the park is blooming and green during the Boston summer. There are swings and play areas for the little ones, and a merry-go-round for everyone to enjoy. You can fly a kite or sit in the park... More

Sandwiched between the Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market area and the Waterfront this Park provides a welcome area of grass and planted borders to break the otherwise built up area.

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.

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.
