Boston's Rose Kennedy Greenway   



On this walking tour, we'll explore the Rose Kennedy Greenway, the beautiful park that curves through the heart of downtown Boston. Meandering like a wavy ribbon of green for 1.5 miles, it stretches from the North End to Chinatown and connects Boston's oldest neighborhoods to its waterfront. Like a rooftop garden, it grows on the top of the underground portion of Route I93, which Boston's infamous Big Dig relocated underneath the heart of the city. We'll stroll through The Greenway's series of linked parks, each with its own mix of attractions. We'll explore the Pollinator Ribbon, a special series of gardens designed to attract pollinator species, take a peek at the Greenway beehives, and walk the labyrinth in the Armenian Heritage Park. One of the few organic and self-sustaining public parks in the country, it is home to a wonderful collection of carefully curated permanent and seasonal public art, nestled among beautiful fountains, an amazing variety of flowers, trees, and shrubs, and a Carousel designed from the drawings of Bostonís schoolchildren. Join us for a walk through this astonishing oasis in the heart of our city. In an effort to keep our walking tours affordable, and to gain some financial support for our program, we are offering "pay what you will" options. Please choose the payment amount that is best for you. Thank you for your generosity!
