    This is a huge park within the city limits but definitely on the perimeter. So it is off the beaten path. A good place for a hike or a picnic, but you probably need a car or a cab to get here.

    Came across this place when looking for somewhere to view the city of Boston from across the water. Managed to find free parking nearby but we did go around 6pm on a weekday. Really great views of the city plus the weather was fabulous. Recommended location if you just want a few nice pictures

    The reservoir is a common place to run, with many people walking, running, taking their dogs on a walk, or just generally enjoying the outdoors. There are plenty of nice neighborhoods nearby, and a well marked bike lane in the road, so it’s a great place to spend a few hours exploring Boston College and Chestnut Hill. The reservoir itself is a little boring, because it’s a man-made lake, but it’s still fun to walk around. If you’re in the area and looking for a good place to work out or just get a nice walk in, this is one of the spots you should check out. Make sure you visit the waterworks museum next door, and explore the Boston College campus!
