Within the Fens exists the oldest remaining wartime Victory Garden (1941) planted by citizens. Today, it is a well-loved and tended community garden of flowers and vegetables.
Boston Harbor Islands
34 islands situated within the Greater Boston shoreline.
Green and open spaces, rivers and ponds, and a wealth and diversity of trees, shrubs, flowers, wildlife habitat, riparian life, bridges and other structures make up this urban jewel. Six parks now known as the Emerald Necklace created by Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr.
The Esplanade stretches almost three miles along the Boston shore of the Charles River, from the Museum of Science to the Boston University Bridge.
This "country park" is the largest park (527 acres) and crowning jewel of Olmsted's work here.
