"I promise to be kind." 

"I promise to to be nice to my neighbors."

"My wish is girls play baseball." 

On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Boston community planted their promises on The Rose Kennedy Greenway during the first Rose's Garden StoryWalk. 

The Greenway hosted the StoryWalk of New York Times bestselling author/illustrator Peter H. Reynolds' children's book, Rose's GardenInspired by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy and the work she did to make Boston a beautiful place, the book features a gorgeous garden much like The Greenway that winds through Boston's downtown.

The Greenway, and partner organizations - The John F. Kennedy Library FoundationThe Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate, the Boston Children's  Museum, and The Reynolds Center for Teaching, Learning, and Creativity, FableVision Studios, hosted paper flower making activities throughout the summer and joined the culminating event on Aug. 25 which featured a reading of the story and group photo. The highlight of the day was a visit by "Rose."
