“Pretty Park - must see in Boston”
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.

“Oasis in the City”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

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”
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.

“Nice enough”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Nice enough to walk through,sit, rest, and people watch before starting the Freedom Trail. Once through it, the rest of Boston has so much more to see and absorb.
