Boston Public Garden

The Boston Public Garden is a 24 acre (10 hectare) botanical oasis of Victorian flowerbeds, verdant grass, and weeping willow trees shading a tranquil lagoon. At any time of the year, it is an island of loveliness, awash in seasonal blooms, gold-toned leaves, or untrammeled snow.

A statue of George Washington, looking stately atop his horse, greets visitors at the main entrance on Arlington Street. Other pieces of public art in the park, however, are more whimsical. The most endearing is Make Way for Ducklings, always a favorite with tiny tots who can climb and sit on the bronze ducks. But it’s the peaceful lagoon that draws visitors and locals a like to the Public Garden. For it is hear, you should take on the slow-going swan boats, a serene relic of bygone days.

Practical Info

The Boston Public Garden is located west across Charles Street from the Boston Common, bordering the Back Bay neighborhood. The garden is easily accessible via the MBTA subway, or the T. It’s also close to many Back Bay sites such as the Boston Public Library, Trinity Church, and Gibson House Museum.
