The Z - Boston Zipline

Ride the Z over The Greenway!

Spanning 220 feet, the zipline carries riders along The Greenway's Parcel 12, starting from Clinton Street across from the Armenian Heritage Park and landing near North Street, across the North End Parks. With two parallel cords, riders soar alongside each other (or race!). From the top of the 30-foot tower riders have a unique view of downtown Boston, the waterfront, and The Greenway!

Tickets are $8 for one rider and $15 for a pair. The Z is open for rides from 11a-7p Sunday-Thursday and 11a-9p Friday-Saturday now until Labor Day, with reduced hours through mid-fall. 

The Z is the centerpiece of a temporarily revitalized ramp parcel (known as "Parcel 12"), whose development remains in a joint State/City planning phase. This summer, Parcel 12 will be a place for families, friends, and independent explorers to ride a zipline, observe public art and hang out in our iconic Adirondack furniture!
