“IT IS WHAT IT IS”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Hard to really describe what this is all about and it still is under some development. Essentially it is the beautification effort left behind from the BIG DIG - whether it succeeds in the effort is really questionable. So much more could have been done with the space and to honor its namesake.

“Great place to sit for a while and people watch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We haven't explored the whole green way yet, but we are impressed by what we have seen. We loved the fountain we saw. Children were playing in some of the water. Many others were catching their breatch, reading the paper, and so forth.

“A taxpayer rip-off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The Greenway is America's most costly highway median strip. The so-called Conservancy that runs it gets millions from the state to pay a director more than the Governor makes, and the executive staff makes ten times as much as is spent to maintain the dinky 13 acres of "park".

Nice area just near the Faniuel market. Peace to walk along in the bustle of the city. It is grea to see green spaces that are preserved for future generations.
