ost people overlook Piers Park, built and maintained by Massport in East Boston and a favorite with locals who prefer to keep it to themselves. Go see it for yourself, and, from it, an unparalleled view of the city skyline. But that’s not the only draw. A 600-foot red-brick pedestrian promenade juts out into the harbor on two rebuilt piers with covered pavilions and especially well-maintained landscaping. The park is popular with walkers, runners, and cyclists, and with families whose kids enjoy the playgrounds and the sight of airplanes taking off and landing at nearby Logan Airport, or who pack a lunch to enjoy at one of the many picnic tables. There’s an outdoor amphitheater with live music in the summer, and a priceless amenity: free parking. Healy
