Public Garden, Boston: 55 reviews and 134 photos


<font color=3399CC size=+1><b>Public Garden</b> - a real gem of a park, this beauty was founded in 1861 and offers an abondance of fountains, gardens and labeled trees. Be sure and see the <b>Swan Boats</b> located in the Lagoon. Rides are available from 10 am to 4 pm daily, adults $1.75, children $.95. The pedal-powered boats gently glide beneath the smallest suspension bridge in the world. The wonderful Caldecott Award book, <b>'Make Way for Ducklings'</b> by Robert McCloskey is situated here. During summer months free outdoor theater presentations please picnic-toting spectators who lounge on blankets. This year's production is Shakespeare's <b>Twelfth Night.</b></font>
