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.

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.

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.

Beautiful Park and an attractive entry way into the North End. Fun to visit if you are vacationing and a great break for lunch if you are working. People watching is a great sport there

Sure this could be nice with enough money and vision. The latter is there, the former not. This can be a 4 star easily but seems to be permanently half baked
