Lovely park even when not in full bloom. I found horrible that some organization had put straw hats and fake flowers on the duck scultures, refused to take a photo. This type of intervention should not be allowed, how to disrespect an artistic creation with a small trait

Great for walking. cherry trees in full bloom. Very friendly squirrels so bring some peanuts, etc. They will take them right out of your hand. Safe to walk anytime. City does a great job keeping out the riff raff. Good energy here and never seemed to be that busy

Lovely green area to enjoy just at the side of the Boston Common. Highlights ate the ducking statues, the Washington statue and the swan boats on the frog pond. Close to T line.

A perfect place to stroll on a lovely spring day. Beautiful flowers,trees with nice walking paths. Minutes from Beacon Hill-also a lovely walking spot on a spring day. Many people and many children. Nice family atmosphere. I would highly recommend. A little peace and quiet in the middle of bustling Boston!
