Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway
Holiday Travel Guide

Boston which includes a fountain, a high-rise building and a garden

This gorgeous chain of downtown green spaces cuts across some of Boston’s favorite neighborhoods, following the path of a former “highway in the sky.” 

Boston’s Rose F. Kennedy Greenway is a marvelous feat of urban planning. Once a clogged downtown highway, it is now extended landscaped green spaces, organically maintained and carefully preserved to bring fresh air into the large city of Boston. Admire this bold effort to reclaim public space, typical of Boston’s astute repurposing of its waterfront and urban environment. Even better, enjoy the small parks that make up the Greenway, beloved by locals and visitors alike, producing both a charming way to cross the city and a gorgeous place to relax in good weather.

After a rocky start in the public consciousness, the Greenway has won over the hearts of Bostonians. The parks drew only 96,000 visitors in 2009, but by 2012 over 600,000 enjoyed the area. Now the Greenway is a true fixture of the various neighborhoods it crosses. Look for kids splashing in fountains, students and poets reading on benches and local young professionals stopping to enjoy a snack and use public Wi-Fi.

Twice a year, the Greenway hosts a seasonal farmers market with a wide range of offerings from local producers. Attend one of the outdoor concerts organized by the nearby Berklee School of Music, a yoga group or free outdoor exercise classes. Still, the locals’ favorite way to enjoy the parks is by simply walking, sitting or reclining in the sun.

The Boston Greenway is easily accessible from many downtown subway stations. Its length runs roughly between South and Haymarket stations; its northern end is a short walk from North Station. Stay in the area for a plethora of fine eating, drinking, and sightseeing options or eclectic food truck service.
