Boston, MA 02116
On this walking tour, we’ll explore the winter landscape of the Boston Public Garden. During the wintertime, the Garden has a simple, quiet beauty. Its structure and design emerge with a clarity often hidden by its lush summertime flowers and foliage. As we stroll along its winding paths, we’ll hear the stories behind this Boston treasure. How did a muddy marsh become one of the world’s most famous gardens? We’ll hear stories from its past, stand under trees that trace their ancestry to prehistoric times, and sit on Robin Williams’ Good Will Hunting bench. There are also many wonderful stories behind the Garden’s multitude of statues, including two of Boston’s most famous...think ducks and presidents! We’ll spend a moment in the Garden of Remembrance, which is a memorial to 9/11, and see the Survivor Tree, gifted to Boston after the Marathon Bombing of 2013. The Boston Public Garden is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a National Historic Landmark. Come enjoy a winter walk through one of Boston's most beloved parks. Meet outside the Boston Public Garden at the corner of Charles Street and Beacon Street, Boston.
