Really nice park. Nice to walk round and as it was cold was really quiet. The ducks are great to see. Loved it.

This is a lovely place to walk, learn from all the sculptures, watch the birds, squirrels and all the tree species planted there.
This is my second time here and my 2 visits were on April, so I can only imagine how beautiful this place must look like during summer or fall, full of colors.

The sad thing during this trip was that the lake was dry :(

They had their Easter bonnets one. Love the story book. This was one of my must sees in Boston. Love all the dogs walking through the park.

We walk through the Public Gardens whenever we have a chance when visiting Boston. Our grandkids love the Bronze Ducklings dressed in Easter hats in the Spring. The Swan boats come out, and the food vendors set up their refreshment stands. The flower gardens are extensive and very colorful and well maintained.

Not too big but good enough for a hike. It’s at the center of the city and easily accessible. The freedom trail also starts from here.
