Boston LifestyleIn addition to the rich arts and cultural climate that the Boston lifestyle has to offer, the city is also abundant with opportunities for splendid outdoor experiences.Did you know that the City of Boston oversees 217 parks, playgrounds, and athletic fields? Or that it is responsible for two golf courses, 17 fountains, 16 historic and 3 active cemeteries, 65 squares, 75 game courts, and 2,346 acres of parkland trees? They are also responsible for more than 35,000 street trees. This is an abridgedlist from the city's Parks and Recreation page.Add to that some of the features on its many public parks, such as public art, wi-fi, stages and amphitheaters, sports facilities (basketball courts, swings, baseball fields, soccer fields), and playground play structures, and you've got quite a network of park services and amenities. There is even a park on Spectacle Island, one of the Boston Harbor Islands, offering a gazebo (pictured above), a shelter, and scenic vistas. It could actually be argued that you canenjoy parklike settings with scenic vistas almost anywhere on the Boston Harbor Islands.Are you planning onrelocating to Boston?Are you looking to buya condo or home inBoston?Here's myoverview of Boston real estate byneighborhood.If youhavequestions about buying or selling Boston condos or homes, please call me at617-584-9790, orsend me an email via the linkbelow. Boston real estate
