This is the perfect place to get some exercise, people watch, or just enjoy the day. It's a must-see in Boston.

I love urban green spaces. They were doing some tree work while I was there which made it a bit noisy during my visit but I still enjoyed the scenery while grabbing a quick breakfast & coffee.

We visited during the hot spell in July 2013 when temperatures were around 100 F. Despite the extreme temps, it was still relaxing to pick a spot under a tree on the grass and watch the swan boats float along. Scenic, beautiful and relaxing. One of my favorite memories of Boston.

This is a perfect city park, much smaller than Central Park but almost as picturesque! The only reason I'm rating it a 4/5 is that there isn't a lot of signage so we were unsure where we were until we asked someone. But we may have missed it. There's a nice pond, bridge, park benches where aggressive squirrels look for food, and several people enjoying the outdoors while engaged couples take photos there. A nice quiet place to picnic if you're visiting Boston during the warmer months!

A lovely park to wander around. Mrs Mallard and her ducklings a great attraction. The grounds were very clean and well kept. A great place to relax after walking the city.
