Best Place to Find an Empty Tennis Court

Dearborn Park

Dearborn Park is one of those pocket parks around the city that you wouldn't know of unless you lived in the neighborhood. It's tucked into a little side street on Beacon Hill, and is a place of unexpected grace and serenity, shaded by broad-leafed trees. You might find a couple of kids playing on the playground, or an occasional soccer game on the verdant field, but there is almost never anyone using the tennis court that lies beyond. Tennis apparently isn't the thing in this largely immigrant neighborhood, but if it's your thing, the court is yours for the taking.—Nina Shapiro
