Very good park we defenetly don't have this at home. From this park you can either go to the harbor or fenway.

Brilliant oasis on a warm spring day, plenty of benches, water and grassed areas all well kept and feels safe

We visited on a warm and sunny Saturday and the Public Garden was packed with families, couples and others enjoying the weather and settings. Not all the trees or flowers were in bloom when we visited. The Swan Boats were operating and we took a tour around the lagoon on one. It was a fun experience, but unlike other Boston attractions, there is no narrative provided during the relatively short ride of less than 15 minutes. The boats do not operate during inclement weather and the cost was reasonable at $3.50 for seniors.

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
