This garden is much nicer than the commons, because of the beautiful ponds, flowers and foliage definitely a great place to lay back and sit in the shade and listen to the city go buy.

I walk through the garden many a morning on the way into work and get to see the duckling statues decorated for different holidays. The statues are popular with the kids.

In summer come to ride the swan boats, a treat for the young.
I recommend reading "Make way for Ducklings" before visiting with the family.

The gardens are meticulously kept, and the flowers in bloom in spring are a real treat after a Boston winter.
