Best of Boston

2014 BEST Green Space

Piers Park

This hideaway on Eastie’s fringes isn’t easy to find, but the payoff is lovely: the most glorious views in the city. Promenade to the edge of the pier, recline on a park bench, and gaze at the skyline across the harbor. There are also plenty of shaded pavilions, signposts with information about East Boston’s immigrant history, and a well-maintained playground with soft surfaces for the kids.
