The Prettiest Winter Parks In Boston

Boston is a wonderful city with a lot of green spaces which makes it particularly popular with summer tourists. However, in the wintertime, some of Boston's most beautiful parks really come to life. 

The cold weather doesn't mean you have to stay indoors during your trip and there are so many delightful outdoor areas to enjoy. In this article, we’ll list the prettiest Winter parks in Boston for you to enjoy during your trip. There's something in this list for everyone whether you prefer a casual stroll or a serious winter hike.

Boston Common

Boston Common is probably the most well-known park in Boston, and it's a great place to visit year-round. However, in the Winter, it really comes alive. If you're willing to brave the frosty temperatures, you can enjoy ice skating on the Frog Pond, or stay warm with a delicious hot chocolate from the cafe. Whatever you're preference, you're sure to enjoy a winter walk in this charming park.

Boston Freedom Trail

If you love history and enjoy a long walk, then why not walk the 2.5-mile stretch known as the Freedom Trail. Along the trail, you can take in breathtaking historical buildings, and enjoy a variety of green spaces and monuments along the way. 

It could take you as much as a full day to take in all the sites on this historical trail, so be sure to wrap up warm and take plenty of pitstops in winter. However, winter is the best time to view some of the most famous Boston tourist attractions, as they look particularly stunning when smattered with snow.

Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park

Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park is a traditional summer hangout for Bostonites and one of Boston’s most popular tourist locations. However, it's a fun place to visit in the winter too. You can enjoy holiday lights and breathtaking views of the Harbor. Although, be sure to wear a hat, as the chilly wind from the water can be particularly biting on a cold winter’s night.

Rose Kennedy Fitzgerald Greenway

If you like a park with a lot going on, be sure to check out the Rose Kennedy Fitzgerald Greenway. This stunning green space is great for taking a stroll, and you may even find some food trucks parked near the carousel to enjoy some classic Boston bites. Nearby the park, there is also a famous local Brewery named Trillium's which is a wonderful place to stop for a drink and get out of the cold for a while. 

Noon Hill

Located in Medfield, MA to the southwest of Downtown Boston, and around 45 minutes by car from Copley House, Noon Hill is the perfect winter escape for those looking to get back to nature and enjoy the beautiful country views that Massachusetts has to offer. 

The park is home to over 4 miles of hiking trails and you can even enjoy a spot of cross country skiing there in the winter. If you're looking to enjoy some winter hiking in Boston, then this is well worth the trip. 

Happy walking!
