Limited capacity: Registration Closed



The Good Old Esplanade in a New Way

Join M.J. Shultz and Irene Kochevar on a Stroll through the lower Esplanade that’s usually overlooked. We’ll check the new improvements being made “on the other side.” There’s a poem, a wildflower garden (maybe not yet) and a landscape designer other than Olmsted. Afterwards, we’ll head for lunch at the Beacon Hill Hotel on Charles

Meet at 10:30 a.m. on the benches beside the Whitney Hotel on Charles Street opposite the Charles/MGH station on the Red Line T. We’ll wait 10 minutes. If you’ll be late or absent, please call either the leaders or the office. Registration is required for BHV members and their guests. Free. Weather permitting. 

Strolls move at an easy pace for about one hour, including rest stops. Walks strive to move at a steady pace for about 1 1/2 hrs. Each is led by 2 BHV members; each offers the opportunity to stay for a group lunch afterwards; each is oriented around access by subway, and each requires registration for both members and their guests.
