This perfect little Park along the Charles is a perfect spot to relax in the City. Perfect Location near Lynch Skate Park!! There's something here for the whole family. Great lunch spot next door at Lingo.

Great park with lots of playground options for kids of different ages. The water spray is pretty great for a hot day. Nice trails to walk or bike on along the river and with views of the city. Downside: shortage of metered parking spots nearby...More

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
