Boston's HarborWalk is a public walkway along the waterfront, with parks, public art, seating areas, cafes, exhibit areas, interpretive signage, water transportation facilities and a wide range of other amenities. Like many cities, Boston has had to reclaim its shoreline from years of neglect. The HarborWalk is part an ongoing project that will eventually culminate in the creation of about 45 miles (39 are fnished) of a continuous path along wharves, piers, bridges, beaches and shoreline from Chelsea Creek to the Neponset River.
This guide weaves on and off the HarborWalk as the Rose Kennedy Greenway is almost adjacent (separated by one road) and there are several detours you can make, into Faneuil Hall or the North End, for example.

There is an official marker located on the corner of Congress and Purchase streets, near the Boston Children's Museum. less «
