Walked through Public Garden. The flowers are beautiful in the spring. The swan boats are a great for the kid in all of us and leave lasting memories. Feed the squirrels, visit with the ducks from Make Room for Ducklings

Great way to spend a Sunday

It's such a beautiful park, tons of walking paths that allow you to meander about. You can take a nice ride on the swan boats (which I recommend doing at least once) and then pop over to enjoy a picnic under one of the many willows. My husband picked one of these perfect willows to propose to me under and I will forever cherish this beautiful garden!

My family has been to the Public Gardens many times. A treat for children to ride the swan boats. Beautiful flowers and trees all around the park. An urban oasis.
