North Point Park Playground

1 North Point Blvd, Cambridge, Ma 02141




North Point Park has a great playground close to the Museum of Science!

North Point Park Playground offers a large play area with a splash pad and gorgeous views of Boston. Kids will love the large wooden jungle gym structure, but there are multiple other climbing structures too. A shaded picnic table area is nearby, which is a great place to host parties. The larger park space is complete with walking and running trails and, of course, lots of green space. 

Right by the Charles River, North Point is a short walk from the Museum of Science and, for future X-Gamers, an active skateboard park is just a couple blocks away. Public transit is available, and due to limited street parking, it might be the best bet.

The Head of Accounting and Boston Ambassador, Jenny has been living in Boston for almost 10 years. Before Boston, she lived in Washington, DC for 8 years, and previous to that grew up on Long Island, NY. Along the way, she spent a few months in Amsterdam with her family biking all around and exploring that beautiful city! Jenny has always enjoyed being active - from organized sports to jogging, and of course, being in the garden as much as possible when the weather is cooperative. She tries to include her children in all of her active hobbies. With two toddler boys, ages 3 and 5, she and her husband spend their time discovering new places and things to do in the New England area. Spending time outdoors in all types of weather and encouraging her children to love all seasons is very important to her - and so is helping and encouraging others to do the same. Jenny and her family love spending time at the beach, traveling, taking walks and hikes, and of course, finding new playgrounds!
