Boston Public Garden and Boston Common Walking

The parks offer flat paved walkways that make great places for family walking, baby carriage, or wheel chair.

Boston Public Garden Walkways

The Boston Common and The Public Garden   make Boston a great place for  walking, particularly in the Spring when the tulips and flowering trees bloom.  (Tulips April 15)
Boston Public Garden's flowered and tree-lined paths circle the pond where the Swan Boats carry passengers.

Boston Subway, Transportation

From Boston Commons's Park Street entrance, Boston's subway system takes travelers to Cambridge and its art museums near Harvard Square, the House of Blues and its Gospel lunches, ethnic restaurants and the glass flower collection at Harvard University's Natural History Museum.  These sites are walkable from the station at Harvard Square.
Boston's Red Line serves the Kennedy Memorial Library, and the Green Line serves baseball's
Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
A walk on part of the freedom trail leads to the aquarium and the island shuttle where you can take a boat to spend a day of island-hopping in
Boston Harbor.
Fort Warren, the first of five stops, dates to the Civil War and once held prisoner Alexander Stephens, the Vice President of the Confederacy. Each island has walking trails, history and, of course, a resident ghost.

Boston Common Parking

Parking is available on the city streets that surround the park but these fill early (two Hour Max).  An underground parking garage with a reasonable weekend day rate is available at the entrance to the Boston Common, between the two parks

The Freedom Trail

The Freedom Trail starts in Boston Common.  Follow the plaques and the red brick markers through the historic parts of Boston to see places of significance during events that led to the Revolutionary War

The Boston Common and Boston Public Garden are great places for walking.  The Parks are paved walkways bordered by trees and flowers and ideally located in the center of the City of Boston.

April Tulip Bloom, Public Garden

The Spring flowers, including tulips, bloom during the third to fourth week in April.  Many other flowering trees, magnolias included, bloom in the park and on the side streets around the park.
Both the Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden are in the same location connected by a pedestrian crosswalk.  The paved walkways of Boston Common, once a pasture for local cows,  connect to the flowered and tree-lined paths of the Boston Public Garden, famed for the Swan Boats and Spring flowers.
