If you have the time, this is a pleasant area next to the Common that you might want to stroll though or take a break in, as you begin your Freedom Trail walk. Picturesque and relaxing.

When in Boston you should take time for a walk round the Boston Public Garden. It is a tranquil oasis in the heart of the city.

On a sunny day there is nothing better than walking around this place. It is so well kept, it's amazing. The sound of music and people enjoying the area is great. Lots of beautiful flowers and plenty of nice spots to sit and relax. Enjoy.

Nice and clean with kids areas including a splash area and playground. We enjoyed a nice walk through the park with kid type entertainment all around (clowns, bubbles, balloon creations, etc.)

What a beautiful spot for a walk. My son and I happened on the park while walking from Quincy Market to the Prudential Building. Next time we go to Boston I'm going to pack a lunch and enjoy the park. Highly recommend.

During the day this is one of the most beautiful spots in Boston. Gorgeous. At night - it's full of heroin addicts and is really really unsafe. Be careful!!!!!

Visit this historic and ritzy Boston neighborhood to
soak up its classic New England charm as you stroll
down cobblestoned, gas-lamp lined streets. Bring your
walking shoes, camera, and select a nice day to wander
through the hilly neighborhood and check out its
exclusive addresses. Louisburg Square, Mt. Vernon
street, Chestnut street and the extremely narrow and
widely photographed Acorn street make a nice walking
