Esplanade playground with a big and little kid area!

A great gated playground along the esplanade close to the Harvard Bridge. There are two gated play areas; one for smaller kids featuring baby swings, a climbing structure with slides, and shaded seating. The second play area features a tire swing, regular swings, lots of slides, a few different monkey bars, and shaded seating. My boys loved the bird structure above the benches. Wonderful views of the Charles River where in the warmer months there are plenty of boats and kayakers on the water.

The Head of Accounting and Boston Ambassador, Jenny has been living in Boston for almost 10 years. Before Boston, she lived in Washington, DC for 8 years, and previous to that grew up on Long Island, NY. Along the way, she spent a few months in Amsterdam with her family biking all around and exploring that beautiful city! Jenny has always enjoyed being active - from organized sports to jogging, and of course, being in the garden as much as possible when the weather is cooperative. She tries to include her children in all of her active hobbies. With two toddler boys, ages 3 and 5, she and her husband spend their time discovering new places and things to do in the New England area. Spending time outdoors in all types of weather and encouraging her children to love all seasons is very important to her - and so is helping and encouraging others to do the same. Jenny and her family love spending time at the beach, traveling, taking walks and hikes, and of course, finding new playgrounds!
