    Winding from symbol-rich Chinatown Park to water-jet-studded North End Parks, the Greenway is an ideal spot for a stroll, a fun playground for kids, or a refreshing place to sit and eat a sandwich. Read more

    So beautiful. It's a great place to stop and watch people and the city. It runs near the north end and Chinatown. Grab some Italian pastry then walk off the calories as you go to Chinatown!

    For cooling off in the summer heat our concierge recommends a quick trip to the Rose Kennedy Greenway where refreshing fountains offer refreshing spritzes for any age.

    The water fountains at Hanover & Cross St and Milk & Atlantic are great spots for the kids to cool off in the summer.

    A nice, kind of new park in Boston right near the Harbor. I love taking a walk through before heading to work in the morning when I take the boat in.

    Fun, variable park through the city. Great for a walk, to get lunch from a food truck and more.

    This is the greenest, most comfortable grass in the city. Perfect for reading or napping!
