The garden area is so pretty. Lots of space to just relax, people watch, take your dog and kids. Loved walking through here on all of our outings.

I love spending time here in this garden especially in the summer. Quite a bit of tours start from this place and it is surrounded by many historical buildings and shops. Great place to grab a quick bite to eat and walk around. You can see great views on Boston from here and don't forget to see the ducklings as well.

The gardens were awesome! The flowers beds and landscape were nicer than many I'd seen in Paris. Wish I had time to find a place to sit and relax but we were trying to see all of Boston in 3 days. We cut through the gardens on our walk to Fenway Park and a game.

beautiful park/garden designed by Olmstead, great trees and shrubs, wonderful setting right in the heart of the city. Be sure to take a ride on the Swan Boats and stop to see the "Make Way for Ducklings" statues from Robert McCluskey's famous childrens story

Beautiful park, although not too large. Right across the street from Boston Common. A great place to take a stroll and relax on a nice day and just observe the ducks, birds, and flowers.
