I love the Esplanade! It's been the closest park to where I live for over 10 years and has something for everyone. It boasts the best running trails in the city with a route for any ability, fantastic river amenities like kayaking and sailing and stand up paddleboarding, plus the Hatch Shell music venue for the Boston Pops and Landmarks Orchestra or movie nights in the summer. The park also has gorgeous horticulture maintained by the Esplanade Association, Boston's most impressive tree canopy, and scores of family-friendly events and activities from 5Ks to free fitness classes to park tours and fishing activities. Plus, the Teddy Ebersol's Red Sox Fields are the best-maintained fields in the city for recreational sports. Also, the Esplanade Association has started doing art murals and there was a great one in the park during my visit just west of the Massachusetts Avenue bridge. Super convenient to visit the Esplanade when visiting MIT, Boston University, or MGH.
