Rose Kennedy Greenway
The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway encompasses gardens, plazas, and tree-lined promenades. Offering beautiful places for relaxation within the rhythm of the urban environment, the Greenway is a key feature of the modern reinvention of Boston, Boston Harbor, the South Boston Waterfront, and the Harbor Islands.
Things to Do
Ride the Carousel - The carousel features 36 seats on 14 one-of-a-kind characters designed by Boston school children - it is located across from Christopher Columbus Park and Faneuil Hall.
Splash and Stay Cool in Rings Fountain - Cool off on a hot summer day in Boston at the Rings Fountain in the Wharf District Parks. You can count 64 nozzles that shoot up in the air and create circles of vertical water.
Food Trucks - Plan a picnic in the parks and stop by one of the Greenway food vendors to pick up good eats and tasty treats. From the Bacon Truck to the Chocolate Chip Cookie Truck and everything in between.
Peruse Arts & Craft Vendors along the perimeter of the park during the Summer.
Toss a ball or a frisbee, read a book, or even picnic in one of the many open green spaces.
