While the whole district is dotted with smaller, parking-lot sized basketball courts and other “urban parks,” the pride of the district is Kingsley City Park. It is an ill-tended, dense mess of vegetation squatting on the edge of the district, but it is the closest anyone can get to nature without heading to other parts of Boston. Indeed, many life-long residents of the district believe it is representative of nature as a whole.
Three overgrown paths weave their way in between haphazardly placed trees and one small pond, giving Kingsley Park an intimate, if overbearing, feel. But it also makes it a great place to fish for strung out hippies, teen-age lovers, and temporarily buried secrets.
