Its a very pleasant park, with lots of flowers, amazing trees and very well kept by the city. Enjoy the sorroudings and the squirrels that run free all around the park.

“Pleasant stroll”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Tidy, safe and simple park to wander in the centre of town. Great it been kept, other cities have lusher and larger and more diverse parks. It great Boston has kept this simple park as a excellent retreat from the bustle that surrounds it. .

Was here with study-holiday students and it was a great place to meet. Centrally located so easy to round up.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

If I lived in Boston I would certainly spend more time here and the Public Garden. There was something just so peaceful and lovely about the experience. There are ducks and swans and birds that go for worms in the ground a few feet from where you're standing. Obviously, no great fear of people. That's nice.
The Public Garden is lovely.

“Lovely gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

The flowers, ponds, weeping willow trees, swans, ducks, squirrels, and the swan boat ride make this a tranquil spot in bustling Boston. Old and young alike will find pleasure here.
