Nice place to take a break

This park is a nice picturesque green space in Boston where all the action is. It's close to restaurants. Great place to sit and relax.

Loved this waterfront park. The beautiful trellis makes it even more enjoyable. Take a quiet walk and enjoy the view.

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.

A nice stretch of grass and benches in the middle of the city. A great place to have an ice cream and watch the harbor.

Great place to picnic with the family or date. This beautiful park is awesome for everyone. It's a nice place to take pictures, relax, nap, stroll with the kids. I've even seen a few marriage proposals taking place at the park. If one doesn't want to picnic here, there's many great restaurants nearby and the North End and Quincy Market/Fanueil... More

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.

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
