We thought that there would not be much blooming in early October, but the gardens were beautiful just for the scenery alone.

This is a very nice park! Well kept and full of heritage-multiple statues. People were walking through or just hanging out, and there was a race that had gone through the park that morning.

I could have spent all day walking around the Public Garden had there not been so many other things I wanted to see. Clean and paved trails, beautiful trees, shrubs and plantings, flowers and fountains. Plenty of benches and spaces to sit and soak up...More

I go with my wife to feed the squirrel s and enjoy the park as itself. Never disappointing and the squirrels in the Fall are fattening up for the Winter and love all they see.

We had a wonderful week in Boston with 70 degree weather all week. The gardens are very pretty with lots of trees, a pond, sculptures & lots of pretty flowers. The leaves were just being to turn. Enjoyed walking through the gardens.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

There are a couple but your best bet is to go in the Starbucks across the street or better yet the little shopping centre just past PF Changs called Park Plaza

Use the "T" Boston's subway transit system. Maps of the system are available in hotels, etc. The "T" is very user friendly.
