This summer, you’ll be able to ride a zipline through the heart of Boston, thanks to a new Greenway installation.

The zipline, aptly dubbed “The Z,” will consist of two parallel cords that will span 220 feet and run from the Armenian Heritage Park to the entrance of the Greenway’s North End parks, the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy announced Thursday. The Z is expected to begin operation in June, and it will be open throughout the rest of the summer.

“The Z will offer visitors a new perspective on Boston and The Greenway,” Keelin Purcell, associate director of programs for the Greenway Conservancy, said in a statement. “The zipline, art, and tetherball games add to our nearby Carousel and fountains as terrific, all-ages, family-friendly attractions.”


The Greenway hosted a pop-up zipline in Dewey Square Park over Presidents Day weekend, which attracted over 6,000 rides in its three days of operation.

Rides will cost $8 for a single ticket and $15 for a pair. The Z will be open from 11 a.m. to at least 7 p.m. daily, beginning in early June.
