The Rose Kennedy Greenway, a roof garden atop a highway tunnel, is a contemporary public park in the heart of Boston. The non-profit Greenway Conservancy maintains, programs, finances, and improves the 1.5-mile Greenway on behalf of the public. The...more

The greenway is a pleasant oasis in downtown Boston and occupies the space which was once a busy freeway. It is well maintained and as well as the gardens and places to rest there are also numerous small stalls selling a variety of goods.
When Boston's major (but aging) transportation artery was dug up and re-imagined below-ground, the above-ground opportunities for Open Space expansion became apparent. Thus was born the greenway belt. This is a 17 acre path of maybe 1.5 miles in length that runs from Chinatown to...More
On our first day we came across the Greenway. It is a beautiful park running down the middle of downtown. They have fountains, chairs and benches for you to stop, relax and enjoy the views. At lunchtime, we saw food trucks there so you could...More
This is a walkway with pavement and a lot of grass that goes for about a half mile along a route atop a traffic tunnel. There are activities going on all the time. There is a wonderful beer garden about mid-way along the walkway. Lots...More
While visiting Boston we admired all the Green Space all over Boston. We walked all through the Rose Kennedy Greenway & other areas while exploring Boston. A big expensive project from what I understand and way over budget but the Green Space looks and is...More
I love walking in Boston, trust me it’s better than driving. Anyways The Charles River, the Boston Common and Freedom Trail are a few of my favorite treks but for some reason I never made it to the Greenway. I’m glad I finally went; trees,...More
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.
As the others have said, the sculpture, which is suspended high in the air by wires that are barely visible, can be viewed 24/7. A bright sunny day really brings out all the different shades of blues, oranges, etc. On windy... More
As the others have said, the sculpture, which is suspended high in the air by wires that are barely visible, can be viewed 24/7. A bright sunny day really brings out all the different shades of blues, oranges, etc. On windy days the sculpture is a truly "free spirit" dancing across the Boston skyline.
