North Point Park: My Favorite Park in The Boston Area

Do you remember Boston before the Big Dig?  I was young but I certainly do.  I remember the large, hulking, flat out ugly green highway that ran through most of the city.  Now in it's place? A beautiful and fun park called the Greenway in which the traffic from Rt 93 flows underneath.  The big dig sucked for a long time, but in the past few years I've seen a lot of improvement in terms of the parks and open spaces in the Boston/Cambridge area which are all projects related to the Big Dig.  My current favorite spot?  North Point Park.

This park is flat out amazing in a number of ways:

  • You can access it from Cambridge, Boston's North End, or Charlestown.  Each entrance has so many unique things to experience.

  • It is still relatively unknown so you usually have the place almost to yourself.  

  • Simply amazing views.  Click each picture for the larger versions.

I would say that the best way to access the park is via the T by getting off at the Lechmere or Museum of Science stop.  But as I mentioned you can access it from a number or areas.  Map and more pictures below.  Do yourself a favor and visit one of Bostons best parks!
