Each set of parks within the Greenway – North End, Wharf District, Fort Point Channel, Dewey Square and Chinatown – has a unique design that reflects the distinct character of each Boston neighborhood.
We invite you to explore the parks and get to know our thriving city along the way. Experience the entire Greenway on foot by starting at either Chinatown Park in the south or at the North End Parks. Enjoy diverse plantings, unique architectural features, historic landmarks, attractions and the beautiful Boston Harbor and waterfront as you go!
Often called the “front porch” of the North End neighborhood; these parks offer a refreshing place for visitors and residents to enjoy the fountains, formal gardens, café seating and sunny lawns.
These parks reflect Boston’s maritime history with a backdrop of rich colors and textures provided by native New England plans. Highlights include the majestic Rings Fountain, colorful light displays, and an interactive sculpture.
These garden parks provide vistas of the Fort Point Channel and Boston Harbor and act as a bucolic gateway to the Seaport and Financial Districts. The stunning gardens offer a diverse array of modern plants.
The large lawn and urban plaza of Dewey Square Park anchors a busy hub of transportation and is energized with spontaneous lawn games, a seasonal farmers’ market and special events that fill the plaza.
Combining a festive plaza with contemplative garden spaces, this park reflects the rich Asian culture of the Chinatown neighborhood. A uniquely modern park with strong references to the past, symbols of joy, wealth and luck are represented in its plantings, architecture and fountains.
This park acknowledges the history of Boston as a port of entry for immigrants worldwide, and celebrates those who have migrated to Massachusetts. The park features a contemplative Labyrinth and Sculpture.
