A.k.a. the Boston Public Garden, its a huge stop spotted in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts, neighboring Boston Common. The Public Garden was created in 1837. Together with the Boston Common, these two parks make up northern end of the Emerald Necklace, a long series of parks planned by Frederick Law Olmsted. There are a wonderful variety plants here, and it makes strolling around true delight. Easily accessible by locals, it is almost always used, but it never gives the impression of being crowded. Swans, ponds, fountains all add the feel, especially in spring and autumn, when the colors truly come out. Don’t forget to snap pictures by the statue of Mrs. Mallard and her Ducklings. It’s a perfect place to unwind.

Public Botanical Garden, Boston Reviews - Write a Review
This is one of the best places in Boston. Just an all around good vibe and it’s at its best during the summer and fall. The squirrels are pretty gangster, though. Consider yourselves warned. They’ve been so accustomed to being fed at the Public Garden so they’ll surround you while you eat waiting for you to finish. Worse, as one unlucky girl I saw, had the unfortunate experience of having the squirrels losing their patience and jumping on her lunch and completely conquering her food. No joke.
A must-not-miss when visiting Boston! I've only seen it in the fall, and it's beautiful! There are statues, walking paths, gardens, street performers, a pond with an island, and a bridge. Lots of shade and grass to sit in. Dogs are welcome. Be sure to see the "here comes the ducklings" statues... It's a great traditional story of Boston.
Hard to say much that hasn't already been said about the Public Garden. As hundreds and hundreds of people have written before me, it's an absolutely gorgeous spot. As an American Revolution lover, the Washington statue is the highlight for me. If you live in or around Boston and haven't visited, what are you thinking? Go right now (as long as it's sunny out).
Very well kept and pristine. Enough trees to provide plenty of shade while still keeping the area open. Much of the plantlife is labeled with species names. A small river flows through the park, crossed with a number of picturesque bridges. The occasional musician performing live music is common. A great place to spend an afternoon.
We bring here for a nice afternoon stroll. It was a very cool park with a ton of people just hanging out. The Monuments and Gardens were awesome.
