  • if you go on winter you wont enjoy it, so try go on summer, nice place excelent view you will love it 
  • Summer fun, boating and enjoying all that Boston has to offer. A quiet stroll or loud events(street festival) this place has much to offer as a Bostonian community. 
  • Good walk on a clear sunny day. Especially here certainly do nothing but just nice to walk.
