This year marks the fourth year of The Conservancy’s partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts to bring high-quality fitness programs to thousands of visitors to The Greenway. Greenway Fitness allows residents, workers, and tourists alike the chance to explore free exercise courses in a beautiful public space.

“Blue Cross is thrilled to help support this incredible variety of free classes and to help people maintain active lifestyles,” said Jeff Bellows, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Vice President of Corporate Citizenship & Public Affairs. “There’s truly something for everyone, no matter your age, ability or interests. We’re excited to see people expand their horizons and try new, fun classes this season.”

The Conservancy’s fitness offerings are just one element of all the The Greenway has to offer, from over 450 FREE events, open air beer and wine gardens, seven unique water features, and more! Organic lawns and gardens invite visitors to unwind, the Greenway Carousel at The Tiffany & Co. Foundation Grove is spinning daily with a host of native New England creatures, and our free Wi-Fi network continues to stretch the entire 1.5 mile length of The Greenway.

The Greenway Conservancy is delighted to celebrate 2019 as a year-long celebration of the 10th Anniversary of The Greenway. Along with the Conservancy’s public art exhibit, The Auto Show, initiatives include Greenway street pole banners from the North End to Chinatown, stretching the entire 1.5 mile length of the park for the first time. Additionally, 10,000 new bulbs bloomed this spring in the Carolyn Lynch Garden, a new 7000 SF wildflower meadow has been planted, and the Conservancy has installed beehives in our contemporary public park. Other initiatives will be announced later this summer.
