Kennedy Greenway to host free activities
BOSTON (AP) -- Boston's Rose Kennedy Greenway will be hosting free activities for city residents and visitors this summer as part of a new open streets initiative.
Launched in late June by the Emerald Necklace Conservancy, City of Boston and other groups, the Circle the City event will close some of the streets near the greenway and city's downtown wharf district on Sunday morning and early afternoon.
The event, which aims to promote the city's parks and healthy living, will offer free fitness clinics, bike tours and environmental education. It will also feature live music and dance performances.
Circle the City events have also taken place in Franklin Park and Jamaica Pond earlier this summer.
