Beautiful garden with a nice pond and plenty of birds. Don't miss the Ducks from the children's book!

“Beautiful park in the heart of Boston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

The Boston Public Garden is a beautifully landscaped park with a large pond and fountains in the heart of the city adjacent to the Boaton Common. A great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful trees and flowers. We downloaded the podcast from the City's website and used our I-Phones to take a self-guided tour which added to our enjoyment.

“on oasis in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Beautiful, well kept gardens and lawn. There are many paved or cement paths to allow you to enjoy the garden as you go from one area to another. There were a few vendors and many places to sit and enjoy the garden. also- I found Boston a very clean city!
