Riverway[1] is a parkway in Boston, Massachusetts. The parkway is a link in the Emerald Necklace system of parks and parkways designed by Frederick Law Olmsted in the 1890s. Starting at the Landmark Center end of the Back Bay Fens, the parkway follows the path of the Muddy River south to Olmsted Park across a stone bridge over Route 9 near Brookline Village. The road and its associated park form Boston's western border with neighboring Brookline and is popular with local nearby residents in both municipalities.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The article "the" is optional. In local parlance, phrases like "take Riverway for two blocks" and "take the Riverway for two blocks" are used interchangeably.[citation needed]
