Walking through the Public Garden each morning brings an enjoyable start to my work day. I've taken photos of hawks, Redwing black birds, black squirrels, even palm trees. Other than the occasional dog using the grass or bicyclists ignoring the no bike signs, it's a peaceful way to ground myself for the day. Currently there is a bit of renovation occurring.

Loved the ducklings! Wanted to spend more time here but couldn't as we were on a bus tour. Beautiful park. Well worth the visit.

Absolutely Beautiful Park. The statues inside of the park are fascinating and the flowers gorgeous. I am so happy that I took the time to" smell the flowers" and enjoy life here at the historic gardens!

Very enjoyable and fun place for all ages. If you have little kids, beware that it can get crowded. It's a wonderful place for a time-out, to just stroll around and enjoy the flower formations, etc. during the summer.

This is a lovely area for both children and adults alike. There is so much to see and do, the pool, the historic sites etc, great to explore and relax at the same time. Nice easy areas to walk around.
