In Boston Public Garden you'll find a bronze statue by Nancy Schön of a mother duck being followed by baby ducklings. The Public Garden is the setting for "Make Way for Ducklings" by Robert McCloskey, a story about two mallards who raise their family on an island within the park.
🚇 Take the subway to Nakajima Koen St. The station exit is right inside the park.
I didn't have time to explore the full of this sprawling park, though to be honest the big pond is pretty but not that memorable. If you are pressed on time, head to the north-west corner of the park, where the hidden gem is a traditionally styled Japanese garden nestled within the bigger park.
Overall, I preferred Maruyama's atmosphere (called me obsessed, but I cannot stop thinking about those ponds).
