Just across Charles Street from the Boston Common, Public Garden is elegantly landscaped with flower beds, lagoons, walking paths and statues, including a notable monument of George Washington on a horse. You can watch couples posing for their wedding photos every summer weekend. The children's story Make Way for Ducklings took place here, and there is a popular sculpture of the ducklings in the northeast corner of the park. A ride in the famous Swan Boats is an essential experience for any visitor.
I found this place on a Friday and sat and watched the people for a while. I liked it so much that on Saturday I explored the neighborhood for a deli and had a picnic lunch at the gardens. There are no words to explain how beautiful this place is. It's so peaceful and serene inside of the gardens, yet you still hear the sounds of downtown Boston. This place gets very crowded on weekends, but you can always find a bench to sit on or room on the grass. Don't miss this place, it's stunning!
My husband and I walked through the gardens right after it had rained. It was just beautiful! The swan boats weren't operating, perhaps due to the rain? But the gardens were very well kept and June seemed like the perfect time to visit. The only complaint I had was that none of the fountains were working at full power.
The Public Gardens are absolutely beautiful! I was stunned that a public area could have such amazing flowers and plants. This garden is well mapped out with plenty of places to sit and relax. There is a lake with swan rides that many people enjoy, but don't plan on being able to throw a frisbee or anything like that because there are plenty of "keep off the grass" areas.
Along with the flora, there are many statues (I know, I know, there is a statue in almost every corner of Boston) but the George Washington statue is famous and really cool to see. The Public Garden is located across the street from the Boston Common, but it is not filled with homeless people and litter like the Common is. We spent a whole afternoon here (and we're in our early 20s) then went shopping in a nearby district.
We highly recommend planning to spend a couple of afternoon hours here. Best of all...it's free!
the boston public garden is the amazing place to go and visit. The summer time there is so many beautiful flowers and history about it. There are swan boats that take u around the pond to see every inch of the garden. At night is a romantic place to take ur date there on the bridge for those special moments that u want to have .
I like this place because was the first place that I visited when I was in the USA, afther to this place I went with my boyfriends and he promess me that he promised me that he would make a castle for my in that place like christman gift. I will go again in DEcember to see if this is reality.
What a sight for sore eyes after leaving your work from a busy building in downtown Boston. It's absolutely beautiful specially in springtime and summer with all the colorful flowers. Geese, swans and ducks add more to it's natural ambience.
