Boston is home to lush parcels of urban green space, from the Greenway, to the Esplanade, and along the Emerald Necklace, which stretches from the historic parks of downtown, along Commonwealth Avenue, through the Fens, and out to Jamaica Plain. The Emerald Necklace includes bike paths and walkways that make for a recreational delight. If you prefer to be on the water, swing over to Charles River Canoe & Kayak in Kendall Square and explore the Charles River. Or try your hand at rowing at the Community Rowing Center in Brighton.
