Not Central Park but pretty and pleasant for a stroll. Always nice to see the iconic ducklings. Great addition to any trip

So beautiful. Even in winter it was a delight to spend so much time here and also walking through going from A to B.

Everyday it changed and everyday there was something wonderful to look at and explore. How wonderful to have a beautiful parkland right in the city!

So much wildlife!

Love Boston Garden - nice green patch in the central part of the city. Was cold today, not much grass, and ponds are drained for renovations. Looking forward to spring - but not this trip. Bring the kids, bring the dogs, enjoy some quiet time.

Really nice park. Nice to walk round and as it was cold was really quiet. The ducks are great to see. Loved it.

This is a lovely place to walk, learn from all the sculptures, watch the birds, squirrels and all the tree species planted there.
This is my second time here and my 2 visits were on April, so I can only imagine how beautiful this place must look like during summer or fall, full of colors.

The sad thing during this trip was that the lake was dry :(
