This park is a hidden gem! You can walk from Cambridge to the North End stopping to let the kids play along the way. It's highly recommended.

This is a terrific example of successful urban planning. This park is tricky to find (across the street from the Museum of Science) but worth it! Three different kinds of playgrounds for children of all ages plus a terrific splash park ....on the waterway used...More

Very nice and quite place. It's perfect place to walk. Especially if you are waiting for someone to arrive to Boston Logan (10 minutes drive there)

I walk my dog here every day. It has large grassy areas with interesting designs and shapes. It has two children's play areas - I think the difference is for the age groups. There is a little canal for kayaking. Nice flowering plantings. It is...More

A peaceful area, for families, dog owners & runners. I work in the building right next door so I get to walk by this cute little pack every day. Cannot wait for the weather to get nicer so I can spend some more time here!...More
