“A nice place to walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

It is a decent place to walk around. They have a carousel, swan boats, playground, and wading pool. It has a great food truck sitting near the state house.

“Pretty Park - must see in Boston”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We were there on Saturday afternoon and saw several weddings/wedding parties. Lots of pretty statues, well kept grounds. Worth strolling through when you are in Boston.

The people watching, the ducks, the paddle boats, the fountains, the pond, the wedding, the Quinceanera prominade...as a visitor to Boston, I loved it.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

A really beautifully kept park and a joy to walk round or just sit and relax in the sunshine. There is also a bandstand where entertainment can be seen for free.
