Great walking running path down pretty Boston Street

This gorgeous tree-lined promenade is my favorite place to walk/run in Boston. Its a little over a mile to the end and back. The street leads you right to the Boston Public Gardens. You do have to cross over a few streets to continue on the path but it's worth it. Yours kids will love running under the trees, looking at the statues, and people watching. A must-walk in the fall when all the trees are in their glorious fall colors!

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!
