Nice place to walk

They did a really nice job on this Greenway, it's a nice place to walk, and get out of the crowds on the sidewalk.

This is a nice place to sit and watch traffic, the Rats at night are out of control they run right across your feet and you see nothing but rat traps in the grass, they put the water fountains in but thats not doing anything but attracting more people to fee more rats

On a recent beautiful summer Sunday, this beautiful stretch of park, running along the Boston waterfront, was lively with visitors, locals and tourists alike. There's all kinds of activities---the sprinkler fountain for squealing kids, the carousel for all ages, the National Parks Service Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion, art work, food trucks, ice cream, etc.

You will walk along this is you follow the Freedom Trail. It's a beautiful park and fountains in the middle of the city.

So we got lost and ended up here. How propitious. Really adds a needed refresher of nature to the surrounding hubbub.

WOW! The Greenway is stunning! Public art, plenty of green space, and great city views all make up the space. It's hard to believe you're in the middle of the city! A can't miss during spring/summer/fall months.

This is a wonderful place to spend Saturday morning. Bands playing, Artisan Market, dogs and children in the fountain. Everyone in a good mood. Well worth it on a Saturday

This was an incredible display. The heads are huge and well detailed, loved walking around and seeing each one. Also fun watching the children on the splash pad. Roses are beautiful, nice gem in the middle of the city.

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
