Home of Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox, Fenway/Kenmore also boasts many of the City's top cultural institutions, including the Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony Hall.
Fenway/Kenmore is also known for its strong academic presence, including Boston Latin School, America's first public school, as well as several institutions of higher learning.
Many of these undergraduate students, as well as young people throughout the city, are drawn to the lively bars and clubs along Lansdowne Street. The Fenway is another central thoroughfare that encircles the Back Bay Fens, the neighborhood's preeminent green space, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.
While this neighborhood may best be known as the home of the Red Sox and Fenway Park, it is also one of Boston's academic and cultural hubs. Nearly a dozen of the 100 colleges and universities located in Greater Boston can be found here giving the neighborhood an unmistakably energetic feel. Not far from Kenmore Square, you'll also find the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum, Museum of Fine Arts and Symphony Hall.
