Why locals love it

There's a lot to do here to enjoy life. The public garden is the scene of many weddings and engagements. Frog Pond is frozen over and used as an ice skating rink in the winter. Frisbee and tennis are common events, as is just sitting around the lake and watching artists and students wander around.

Why you should visit it

If you'd like a break to walk in the park or take in a different view of Boston's skyline, this is the place to go! It's right between Back Bay and Downtown Crossing, providing green space near the city's crossroads!
