The Esplanade stretches for 3 miles along the Charles River on the Boston side, between the Museum of Science and the Boston University Bridge. The map of the Esplanade provides more information about park locations and features such as bathrooms, T-stops, playgrounds, and access ways.
Getting to the Park
The Esplanade is approximately 64 acres and extends for 3 miles along the Boston shore of the Charles River from the Boston Museum of Science to the Boston University Bridge. Storrow Drive separates the park from Boston city proper. Park visitors must therefore use one of the parks eight footbridges to enter the park. Parking is not allowed on the Esplanade. We recommend that park visitors either take the T to the park or that they park in one the nearby public parking facilities.
