It is easy to forget that you’re standing in the heart of the Financial District on this stretch of the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway. Clusters of honey locust and pin oak trees buffer the noise of nearby traffic and provide shade for families looking to take a break from sightseeing. Check out the custom-designed Greenway Carousel that celebrates the natural New England environment with 14 whimsical animal characters taken from land, sea and air. Open daily 11 am-6 pm. Tickets: $3 per ride.
