Tranquil and relaxing gardens with a lovely little bridge over the pond. Nice for very early morning strolls before it gets too busy.

My husband and I visited the Public Garden on the 4th of July week. Great place to run and just enjoy the outdoor life. There were vendors, street performers, and people watching! Great experience and would highly recommend!

I enjoyed the greenery and bright colours of the flowers which made for great framed shots of the city skyline . Place was swarming with squirrels scampering on the grass and up trees, foraging for food most of which was in the form of peanuts...More

A beautiful place of absolute tranquility in the busy city.. fountains, statues, and lovely parkland and flowers.. impossible to believe you're in the centre of a bustling city

Nice public gardens for sure, and the duck statues alone are almost worth the visit, but there's just not much here to see. I mean yeah you can walk around it, but that's about it. It doesn't have much to offer in terms of architecture...More

Really nice place to walk through or sit and read. Flowers and plants really pretty. Nice to see the swans and wildlife in the park.

Boston Public Garden is an amazing walk and escape from the city. I walked all around the pond and statues, watching squirrels and ducks of all kinds. You'll have to pose with the mother duck and her babies!

Definitely worth chilling out in but not much more to do. Only go if the weather is good. Well tended.

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

Yes! There are vendors within the walking paths of the park. Right across the street there are coffee shops, fast food, restaurants, pizza you can see from Boston Common. Lots of choices.

It is in the middle of the City so I imagine you might be able to find a lot not too far away, but I can't say for sure.
