“Nice and safe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I recently spent the morning meandering around the gardens while my husband attended a bussiness conference. The gardens are beautiful, the fountains are tranquil, and the Make Way for Ducklings statues cannot be missed. The swan boat rides were another inexpensive treat. Such a gem in a beautiful city.

“Great even in the winter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Such a wonderful green area right in the middle of downtown Boston. Since we were there in winter, we couldn't experience all that it has to offer, but could easily imagine how fantastic it would be in the spring/summer/fall. Along with Boston Common, it's a great connector between different sections of town and provides an enjoyable walk between destinations. Loved seeing the "Make Way for Ducklings" sculpture as that was a favorite book of my children.
