We visited the Public Garden the day after the first snow. The park was beautiful covered in the fresh blanket of white. The ducks all have little knit hats on. Fun time of year to walk around.

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.
