On a super short trip to Boston for business, was able to take a quick lunch break here. Lovely, clean park with fantastic vignettes and views. I'll be back, Boston!

Anyone who is a fan of this book must see the statues of ducks in their honor. Nice public garden. Swan boats closed when we were there because it was late. Lots of locals walking their dogs and jogging.

How wonderful this place is! Don’t be fooled to think that this is just “some park.” It’s absolutely gorgeous, serene, and deserves to be enjoyed by all.

We had a stroll through the park on a cold but sunny and crisp November day, and it really is a lovely place to spend time. What can I say, a beautifully well maintained park with various ponds and statues. Very pleasant indeed.

This was very well kept and secure. Saw a few policeman patroling. It is on the freedom trail and is next to an old cemetery that Samuel Adams was buried. A very good taste of what is great about Boston.

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.
