“Flowers and colors everywhere”
Reviewed 2 May 2014 via mobile

This is a beautiful spot in a beautiful part of the city. Spring had a touch on the flowers, trees anf grass...there was plenty of different colors all around. Squirrels running free all around. Super cute!

“Make way for the ducklings”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

A beautiful park, right in front of the Taj, excellent location, full of cherry blossom trees. A delightful sculpture Make way for the ducklings, made to commemorate Massachussetts' official childrens book by the same name.

“Boston Public Garden”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Boston Public Garden is one of the must see sights of Boston. We especially loved the swan boats, duck and duckling statues, the history and taking in the beauty of the gardens.

“Very pretty in spring”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Park is very pretty and very clean. It was so well used by families and people of all ages. Nice to see an old style carousel. Quite a few homeless people but there seemed to be outreach workers trying to help them.

“Beautiful in Spring”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The gardens are beautiful, especially with all of the magnolias in spring bloom. We love to stroll along all of the paths, cross the bridge, check in on Mother Goose and her ducklings and just take a few minutes out of the day to enjoy the beauty and serenity.
