Nice Greenway in the City

It's nice to walk in the garden in the middle of the city. Worth a visit and a walk which can also be combined with other walking tour.

This is a beautiful park and the fountains look so fun for kids to play in during the hot weather. The fountains are they type to shoot up and the kids can run around it them and get wet but they don't have to be able to swim.

My kids have loved the fountains at the Greenway for years. From when they were little and we let them go in in their regular clothes to today when we remembered to pack swim suits, the greenway never lets us down. We were especially delighted today by the live music! This was a new treat, and we got to listen... More

The Greenway is a park that is parallel to the wharf waterfront and runs from the financial district to the end of the wharf area. There is plenty of green space (grass) for playing games, having picnics, relaxing and sunning. There are also park benches. The best part is the fountain area where kids (and an occasional dog) are always... More

Took a walk through the Green way strip trying to work off a HUGE dim sum lunch and it was beautiful. Different sections so its not all the same. Had to cross streets but no biggie. They had a wonderful market going on selling all sorts of hand crafts and food. Indulged in the Boston cream pie stand.....YUM! They had... More

It's beautiful and there are so many different parts to see. I love how some sections pay homage to the Big Dig with steel girders integrated into the area.

My family really enjoyed walking along the Greenway during our trip to Boston. We made sure to stop at two fountains to play in, one along the Freedom Trail, and one closer to the harbor (between Central St. and Milk St.). The Greenway adds so much unexpected nature to the city. It really is an exceptional gift to the city.... More

The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy is a beautiful stretch of greenery built once the Big Dig project was created. A great place to spend some time enjoying food from the food trucks, pastry from nearby Italian bakeries or just people watching.

Pretty amazing to find peace and quiet, outdoor movies, open-air art, fun fountains, children enjoying themselves all in downtown Boston IN BETWEEN an endless stream of traffic! We often come here. Go to Little Italy/North End, get your desserts and enjoy them here.

During our Bus tour, we passed by twice. The second time, we got off the bus and we walk the park, beautiful, pretty well taken care of. Lot of people taking a look of this present from Rose Kennedy to the people of Boston.

Thank RustyVE

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
