Boston Common and the Public Garden are fantastic urban parks, and their location in the middle of Back Bay make them ideal for a quick fix of greenery. This ride takes you from the heart of the city in Kenmore Square to a true wooded retreat: Auburndale Park in Newton. Complete with deep forest and marshy lakes, it will make you forget just how close you are to a major city before following the treelined banks of the Charles River back to Boston along the Blue Heron Trail and the Esplanade.
