A beautiful calm green space in the centre of the bustling city. We enjoyed lots of walks here. The play park was great. The Christmas lights and tree were spectacular - really special!

In the spring the gardens are breathtaking. The grounds are cleaned up, the tulips are in bloom and the cherry trees are also. This is also when the swan boats are in the water. If you have the time to walk through the park, there are many bodies of water and statues that are picturesque. And, don't forget to see the "ducks."

This place is a winner. It’s a beautiful and safe park to stroll through. A true gem for the city! On a side note, it’s loaded with large squirrels that are almost the size of a small dog and are not afraid of humans.

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.
