“With lots of playgrounds, excellent scooter and bike paths, and the Hatch Shell performance stage for summer movies and concerts, this park is an outdoor paradise. The Charles River itself is home to sailing lessons and endearing duck tours that even locals love,” says Hadley Douglas of the Charles River Esplanade, a 3-mile park where Bostonians have gathered together for over a century.
