(BOSTON, MA) --The Boston Public Garden's Swan Boats of Boston ride proves that one can soak up the high energy urban environment while discovering Boston and yet still find a way to "get away from it all" in that very community.
Like an oasis in the middle of a desert, the Boston Public Garden Swan Boats of Boston could pacify even Barney Fife. The gentle roll of the pond water, the laundry fresh summer breeze and the views of the big city minus the noise is, to many, a highlight of visiting Boston.
Boston Public Garden, established in 1837, as the first botanical
garden in the U.S., is a sight to behold itself. Adjacent to Arlington
St., its lush flower gardens, cool shaded green grass, park benches to
read book or people watch, and developed pathways to enjoy a pleasant
stroll make for a great day in the more quiet part of the city. The
Boston Public Garden has and shall be a part of Boston's greatness: In
1859, by an Act of the Massachusetts Legislature, the Boston Public
Garden was preserved forever as an open space for the citizenry. It is
lovingly and carefully maintained by the Boston Parks and Recreation
Department and the Friends of
the Public Garden.
We highly recommend you visit the Boston Public Garden and the Swan Boats of Boston. One of the best examples in the nation of solitude in the city, there's nothing like a nice swan boat ride at the Boston Public Garden in the good old summertime.
