Church Park - A Walker's Paradise

BACK BAY

Designated one of the 10 Great Neighborhoods in America, The American Planning Association has formally recognized what residents of Church Park have always known! In the City of Boston, Back Bay is a gem of a neighborhood with its elegant streets, unique shops, great restaurants and vintage homes, and it’s all right outside our door! Church Park and the Back Bay neighborhood are a vibrant blend of history and modernity.

Inspired by 19th century plans for Paris, Boston’s Back Bay is a marvel of urban design, simultaneously historic and hip.

Home to some of Boston's most treasured landmarks, revered institutions, and successful retailers, the neighborhood in many ways is the physical manifestation of the city's intellectual, cultural, and economic prowess.
