Background[edit | edit source]
A part of Back Bay, the Charles River Esplanade is what's left of the state-owned park and neighboring Back Bay urban blocks. The park itself was dedicated as the "Boston Embankment" in 1910, and created as part of the construction of the Charles River Dam. It originally extend to Charlesgate and connected with Olmsted's Emerald Necklace, however it went through a major expansion from 1928 to 1936, widening and lengthening the park land.
Now the location's waterfront mansions still exhibit the faded grandeur of times gone by, and one of the main thoroughfares of Boston—Commonwealth Avenue. Currently, raiders and Gunners are vying for control of this zone, though there are reports of strange smells (stranger than normal) emanating from HalluciGen, Inc. Meanwhile a secret society has made their home within the amphitheater.

- Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide Collector's Edition p.446-447: "Zone 10: Neighborhood: Esplanade
Technically part of the Back Bay Neighborhood, the Charles River Esplanade is comprised of the remains of a park, some waterfront mansions still exhibiting the faded grandeur of times gone by, and one of the main thoroughfares of Boston—Commonwealth Avenue. Currently, Raiders and Gunners are vying for control of this zone, though there are reports of strange smells (stranger than normal) emanating from the HalluciGen, Inc., building on the east side, close to Boston Common. If you fancy a stroll along the Charles River, you might want to pop in and say hello to the folks who’ve made the amphitheater their home; they’re always looking for new recruits to join their secret society."
