There’s a park for that.
Or maybe an outdoor game of chess is more your style? Well, Boston’s got parks for that, too.
In fact, according to a new website launched by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), there’s a Boston park able to accommodate just about any outdoor interest you may have. Now, on Bostongreenmap.org, you can choose a city neighborhood and an activity from a selection of over 300, and watch as the site generates a list of parks, along with their locations, according to your search parameters. Or, if you want, you can search a park by name, should you know the name of your destination but not its location, and get information about its history, where it is, and the activities you can do there. The site is part of an initiative that aims to get residents outdoors and familiarize them with green spaces in the city.
