Amazing City Views
A quick six miles directly south of Downtown Boston lies the close-knit community of St. Marks, tightly packed with multi-family, triple-decker houses for rent. Workers reach the center of the city in less than 30 minutes by driving up Interstate 93 or taking the MBTA red line from Shawmut station, which is only 0.3 miles from the building. Dorchester Avenue runs through the heart of St. Marks, giving residents an active commercial district with homes lining the side streets.
Franklin Park, just two miles west of St. Marks, provides a large green space filled with wetlands, fields, and ponds. This is the location of the Franklin Park Zoo, the Franklin Park Playstead, and the William J. Devine Golf Course. Head a couple of blocks east to the parks along the Neponset River, including the dog-friendly Victory Road Park or to Tenean Beach, which offers a boardwalk, picnic areas, and a playground. During the summer and fall, head to the nearby Ashmont/Peabody Square Farmers Market to pick up some local New England produce.
