Boston’s Kenmore Square: Fenway Park and Cultural Institutions
Kenmore Square—sometimes called Fenway–Kenmore or simply Kenmore—is a vibrant neighborhood about 3 miles north of downtown Boston. It’s home to one of the city’s most iconic sites: Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Another Boston landmark, Back Bay Fens, is just across the street. The large public green space, designed in the 1870s by legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, contains numerous gardens and water features connected by meandering paths.
Many cultural institutions make their home in Kenmore Square as well, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston University, and the Museum of Fine Arts. With nearly 450,000 works, including several photography collections, it’s one of the most comprehensive art museums in the world. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to check out in the area, too, especially on the BU campus, which is centered on the neighborhood’s namesake square.
