Millennium Park opened in 2000 on the site of the former Gardner Street landfill.
The park has athletic fields, access to the Charles River for canoeing and kayaking, as well as walking and biking paths.
There are also age-appropriate playgrounds for children of different ages.
The park is also elevated and is a great place to fly a kite, which is why kite festivals are held there annually.
