The gardens are beautiful, but the swan boats are the best thing here! Don't miss the make way for ducklings statues, which are usually dressed up in seasonal accessories.

Willow trees, swan boats, statues and tulips. These are the things that come to mind when I think of the Public Garden. What a wonderful place for a stroll, picnic, or mid-afternoon nap. And it's no wonder you can always find newly engaged couples taking their awkward photos here--the scenery is gorgeous and so well maintained. And who doesn't swoon when they see little children playing on the "Make Way for Ducklings" statues. I know I do. I'll often go out of my way on my walk home just to pass through here. It's just that lovely!

The Swan Boats on the pond are a fun tradition - and on warm, sunny afternoons, this is a simply beautiful and relaxing activity for the whole family. Plus, the Make Way For Ducklings statues are heartwarming for anyone who grew up with the story - my Boston-bred grandmother (who also happens to love and collect ducks) read it to me every time I visited her as a little girl.Recommended for:Family Travelers

I've loved coming here since I was a little kid. Swan boat rides in the summer and the iconic statues from "Make way for ducklings" make this place one of my favorites!

The rich history of Boston creates an urban aura of deeply rooted pride in native Bostonians as well as the city's visiting tourists. These gardens are sanctuaries in the midst of the surrounding buzz of city chaos. Truly a beautiful, serene spot to go to either with company or on your own. A wonderful spot to reflect and turn inwards, as you're surrounded by others who seem to be doing the same.

Such an incredible public space. This place is almost like a painting from a few hundred years ago. There are lakes with bridges, swan boats, statues and plenty of benches facing the water. A perfect place to walk, reflect or have a picnic.

Locals love this place. In Summers , you will find people jogging here , sitting around chatting, reading a book, Sailing on Charles or just sitting around. Watching the sunset .Its one of the best parts of living in Boston. You can see the sailing clubs across the River, the MIT campus in Cambrdige
