Nice walk around the parkway. Paved with some small hills but otherwise flat. No parking at the starting point. Will need to drive to the other side of the pond for street parking.

Great ride!

Boston Common is America’s oldest public park, and the Public Garden...the first public botanical garden. While living in the Boston suburbs as a child, I visited it with my family several times, usually during the spring when much of it was in bloom. I have also enjoyed returning as an adult during trips back to the city. Of course, riding the Swan Boats in the Lagoon was always a highlight in my younger days.

A precious resource for Boston and a welcome relief from the stresses of city life. Gorgeous end to end.

Lots of wonderful Italian restaurants in the North End!

great for walks, biking, dog walking, jogging

Simple, flat but pretty with nice view of the pond. Good for walking running or biking. Is what it is...no frills, but enjoyable.

Great walk. Paved path is as easy as it gets. Good for kids learning to ride their bikes, strollers, and also wheelchair accessible. Pond wildlife like ducks, geese, and fish when the pond is stocked twice a year. Sailing lessons and canoe/ rowboats for rent make the pond a local destination for frequent and varied uses. Exercize stations throughout make it a go to for JP residents. There is a historic element addressed by signage and representative building foundation on a hill north of the pond. Nice, however often busy, family walk.

I have walked this trail many, many times in all weather conditions. you will almost always have others on the trail, especially in the warmer seasons. It is paved, but the trees and the pond are great.... I have definitely seen people run this loop around the pond...
