Puopolo Park and Langone Park - North End, Boston

After a warm plate of spaghetti and meatballs in the North End, take a walk with your box of pastries down to the harbor to Puopolo Park and Langone Park for a real treat. Frederick Law Olmsted, Mr. Greenway, put his footprint on this stretch of Boston Harbor where now a zillion Harborwalkers and residents stay to play.

Southie's Green Seaweed. The Dorothy Curran Playground.


Do you have any idea what it is? Try tilting your head left to right. Would you believe they are four towering seaweed water fountains swaying in the breeze? Who knew? These wildly imaginative sculptures at the Dorothy Curran playground put a little whimsy (not Whitey) in Southie. Wicked awesome.
