Free water park in Boston

Boston is known as an expensive place to visit. Just parking can cost you $35. BUT once you arrive, the city is full of free or nearly free entertainment. From the Swan-boats and "Make way for Ducklings" statues, to concerts, parks, museums (okay, those are a bit expensive, but worth it), and historic sites we never seem to run out of things to do here.

Now we have a new discovery to add to our list of favorites, the Aquatic Park across the street from the aquarium. No slides or pools, no brightly colored plastic playthings, but what it is will tempt even the grown-up-ed-est person you know. It is almost deceptively simple. A flat concrete area between the northbound and southbound lanes of traffic with lots of water jets that spray in a pattern of organized chaos, causing squeals of delight from the kids playing and their parents too. It is hard to walk past without touching.

We have seen these exhibits before, but always much smaller and inside an amusement park. It is so much more fun on its own. I love this city!

It is a good thing that I carry a change of clothes for the kids in the car. We simply couldn't pass by this much fun without joining in!
