“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.
