Untold stories of the Public Garden
Join the Friends of the Public Garden for walking tours of Boston’s iconic Public Garden.
Learn about the history, sculpture, and horticulture of America’s first public botanical garden by taking a guided tour through this treasured oasis. Please meet at the Make Way for Ducklings sculpture and watch for our volunteer tour guides in green aprons.
Two volunteer tour guides lead each tour. About one-half of the Public Garden (from Beacon Street to the bridge) is covered. We may cancel tours due to the weather. Please call the office at 617-723-8144 to confirm. You may want to bring a hat, sunblock, and water on warm days.
