On the snowy Saturday of 12/18, we took a stroll through. The ducks had knitted caps on!! And the views were breathtaking and whimsical. Couldn’t have asked for anything more magical.

Nice gardens to walk through and you have to see the duck statues which are a tourist attraction. We went in November and the gardens were still worth a visit.

The park is beautiful in the fall! A lovely place to stroll in the middle of the city. The squirrels are so friendly, too!

Well landscaped with public gardens and famous swan boat rides in the summer that have been operated by the same family for generations are just a part of the charm of this lovely city park. And, in the fall, the holiday lights, vibrant colors of the changing leaves and the pathways past famous statues are additional treats for the family. Worth visiting.

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
