Pick Me Up Boston!
So you find yourself in Boston on a day with pleasant weather. Where should you go to get in a great run and a few quality touches? Here is some information courtesy of Nina Nixon and Associated Content.
"One of the best places to play pickup soccer is at the Carter Playground off of Columbus Avenue. Located on the South End of Boston, this "playground" has basketball, volleyball and soccer courts.
