This green walkway is a lovely place to walk, enjoy a nice day, and people-watch. It's also near the water, so you can enjoy views of the water and the city simultaneously. It's near the Faneuil Marketplace, so you can walk off the good food you just ate.

I still remember this area with the ugly elevated highway known as the "central artery." Every time o pass through I am so glad the planners of "the big dig" included all this green space over the tunnel instead of allowing buildings. Walking from the Quincy Market area up to the North End is now a very pleasant stroll!

A wonderful addition following the 'big dig' which made the north end and wharf area so much more accessible. In good weather it's a magnet for tourists and guests... a great place to eat your canoli!

The Greenway is part of the famous, or infamous, Big Dig, the multi-billion dollar road project. The big green overpass highway was torn down, and the roadway was tunnelled UNDER the subway (The "T"). This left a swath down the middle of downtown. FORTUNATELY, government decided to make this a walking park. Now you can see the spiffy architecture of... More

From what used to be a congested vehicle carrying paved space to lively, colorful, fragrant greenway; the contrast is evident. Take the time to walk through and enjoy all the green space in downtown Boston has to offer.

You know I am impressed on how Boston included this Green space right in the middle of the car roadways & tourist areas. We stumbled on this park on the way to the North End. There are larger sections for dogs, picnickers & sports. Lots of benches line the perimeter to sit down on and the concrete area and grass... More

I ran the Greenway while on a recent trip to Boston. Then, as we explored the North End, we would use the tables and chairs as a place to rest. There are so many cool pieces of art and even an outdoor art festival on the Saturday we were there. I did see some shady activity as I got near... More

In the middle of Boston it was very pleasant to walk come across the Greenway while on the Freedom Trail.

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
