There are many treasures to discover along the Mary Ellen Welch Greenway.


Along the Mary Ellen Welch Greenway, there are six murals under the underpasses in the Parks Section of the Greenway.

In 2020, two new murals were painted by Sofie Tuttle and Artists for Humanity. In the next couple of years, the Friends will be working to add one more new mural. 

The “Grandmothers” was painted by the Mayor’s Mural Crew.  “Rising Tides,” and “Hope and Resistance” murals were painted by the City of Boston’s Mural program.

To find out more information about the murals along the Greenway as well as others throughout Boston check out the Boston Mural Map.
