Nothing to dislike. It is lovely. The tiny replica of the Brooklyn Bridge is really cute. I would love to be able to see it when fall is really in full swing.

“Most relaxing spot in Boston”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

This remains the "center" of Boston, and with its beautiful trees (including amazing weeping willows), flowers, and central pond, it is a terrific place to walk, sit, reflect, and take a ride on the Swan Boats in the summer. It is convenient, with a subway (T) stop right at the corner and directly across from the Boston Commons (where there are bathrooms and a food vendor). If you haven't been to Boston before, this is the one place not to miss.

“A place to relax in Boston”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Open spaces, statues, benches, lakes, flowers and little squirrels running about. A welcome rest break after doing the Freedom Trail Walk.
