“An oasis.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

In July 2014 a great place to find a bit of peace and nature. Beautiful flowers everywhere and the statues and funny swan boats all contributing to a cosy feeling. Not an attraction really, but a nice place nonetheless.....

Full of nice green color everywhere you look at. I can stay in this garden for hours and do nothing but just watching people. Love it!

When we were visiting Boston with Cityview trolley, we stop at Boston Public Garden. It is beautiful and it is a nice walk.
The swan boats are cool.

“Picnic in the Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

What a beautiful spot for a picnic! Lots of nearby eateries where you can pick it up and pack it to the gardens. The Swan boats are pretty to watch and the statues of Make Way For Ducklings really cute.
