    What a beautiful amazing park. The park has a well manicured garden, vine-covered archway and nice lawns and a sculpture of the park's namesake, Christopher Columbus.

    Its a beautiful stretch of green where you can sit on a bench and glimpse over the harbor or to the city with wonderful skyline views.

    The park was a nice treat after walking around the North End. We decided to sit on a bench for a short charge and just watch the world go by. We saw plenty of families enjoying the super hot summer day with kids running in an out of a sprinkler sprouting from the ground. I also saw plenty of people laying on blankets, reading or enjoying a few moments with a loved one.

    There are also a few restaurants located between the park and the wharf.

    Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park

    This was yet another new addition to Boston since I had moved away back in 1995. I have to say that I loved this part of Boston, especially the foliage covered trellis walkway. There were a few kids playing in the fountains that are here, but not too many. Perhaps because it was a Friday afternoon when we visited. There's a playground here for the little ones as well as benches for their weary parents to rest their feet. There's a statue of Christopher Columbus along with a dedication plague if you care to read it. I didn't really like the statue, in fact, it took us a while to recognize who it was of. There's lots of flowers during the spring and the summer for flower lovers to enjoy. The trellis offers a nice shady spot out of the sun. I could imagine that there are some very beautiful wedding shots that have been taken here.
