Boston Public Garden is the oldest public botanical garden in the USA. Its a huge public park 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 the northern end of the Emerald Necklace, a long series of parks planned by Frederick Law Olmsted.

The park contains a lake and wonderful variety seasonal 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. 

You can still take a swan boats ride that were first invented in 1877 and are still operated by descendants of the inventor, Robert Paget. Don’t forget to snap pictures by the statue of Mrs. Mallard and her Ducklings. It’s a perfect place to unwind.
