“ok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

relaxing arena, meditation is very possible and meeting nationality is almost like the air around. I will suggest you visit the garden if you are in Boston and see the life duckling and historical duckling.

“Lovely in the Spring”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We love to go in the spring when the flowers are in bloom. It is a lovely walk. The Make Way for Ducklings statues are adorable.

“better than NYC! says a NYC native”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

my signifcant other is from NYC and loves Boston because it's so easy to walk the city and see everything....it's like a smaller version of NYC ..and the people are friendly...( NYC people are too, contrary to popular belief) It's like a big town instead of a city....and the Public Gardens are just beautiful ...no matter what the season!

“So Gorgeous, I proposed to my fiancé there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

They do an amazing job with preserving the beauty even during cold weather. We were there after changing of the leaves so it was that much more special

“Making way for ducklings statues and ponds and fountains galore -a lovely walk.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

It's not a trip to Boston without a stop at the Make Way for Duckings statues. The park, itself, is lovely for a meandering walk. It's near the historic Beacon Hill district and a short walk across the Boston Common. Definitely worth a short visit.
