New Feature!



Site of Boston's annual Fourth of July gala, the Esplanade runs along the southern bank of the Charles River, creating a delightful landscape of manicured lawns, gardens, and children's playgrounds. The city's impressive skyline provides a backdrop, and joggers, walkers, and cyclists flock to the park for scenery and exercise. Free concerts and a wide range of public festivals add further energy to this portion of the parks system known as Boston's "Emerald Necklace."
