2023 Best Splash Pad

The Rose Kennedy Greenway Fountains

Anyone with kids knows the word “more.” So why visit just one splash pad when you can visit any of the seven fountains along the Rose Kennedy Greenway? Our suggested itinerary moves from south to north: Enjoy the waterfall and rock features of the Chinatown Stream, the cool mist of the Harbor Fog Sculpture, and end up at the Rings Fountain when night falls to take in the colorful light show accompanying the spouting jets of water. What more could they ask for on a hot day?
